FORT COLLINS, Colo. - Sophomore Genevieve Ling concluded the opening rounds of the Colonel Wollenberg Ptarmigan Ram Classic in a tie for 20th Monday, leading the Boise State women's golf team in its first tournament of the 2014-15 season.

Ling posted back-to-back rounds of 2-over-par 74 at the 6,352-yard Ptarmigan Country Club (148, +4), and will enter Tuesday's final round just three strokes back of the top 10.

Junior Samantha Martin is just one stroke back of the top 25 entering the final round following scores of 74-76 (150, +6).

"We did some great things today," head coach Nicole Bird said. "We made 21 birdies, so we were definitely able to score. It was a solid start, and any time we drop a score in the 70s - like we did in the second round - we are happy. Tomorrow we need to eliminate some big numbers and stay focused."

Boise State is in 13th place as team, having posted a 609 (303-306, +33) through the first two rounds. The Broncos are just seven strokes back of tournament host and league foe Colorado State, which sits in 10th place amongst the 17 schools in the field.

A pair of San Diego State golfers lead the field individually, with Emma Henrikson and Sirene Blair each shooting 5-under 139 on day one. The Aztecs also lead the team standings at 577 (+1).

Rounding out the scoring for the Broncos were junior McKenzie Ford (75-76--153, +9), and sophomores Oceane Pelloille (80-78--158, +14) and Jamie Donizio (84-78--162, +18).

The final round of the Ram Classic is slated to begin Tuesday with an 8:30 a.m. shotgun start. Live scoring is available HERE.
