CORVALLIS, Ore. - Junior McKenzie Ford and sophomore Genevieve Ling are two of only five individuals sitting at par-or-better after the first two rounds of the Oregon State Invitational, Monday. The duo has the Boise State women's golf team within striking distance of the tournament lead heading into Tuesday's final round.

Ford followed an opening-round 2-under-par 70 with a second-round 73 (+1), and at 1-under 143, is one of only three women in the field under-par. She is currently in third place, two strokes back of tournament leader Clare Sorensen of San Francisco at the 6,283-yard Trysting Tree Golf Club.

Ling opened the tournament with a school-record-tying 4-under 68, then carded a 4-over 76 in the second round. She is even-par for the tournament (144), and will enter the final round tied for fourth.

The Broncos fired a 3-over 291 in the opening round, tied for the second-lowest round in school history, which gave the squad a one-stroke advantage over tournament-host Oregon State. The Broncos shot 295 (+7) in the second round, concluding the day with a team score of 586 (+10).

Boise State will enter Tuesday's final round four strokes back of the Beavers, and just one stroke back of San Francisco.

Junior Samantha Martin joined Ford and Ling in the top 10, concluding the opening day tied for 10th at 147 (75-72, +3). Sophomore Dana Clary, competing as an individual, is also tied for 10th following rounds of 71-76 (147, +3).

Rounding out the scoring for the Broncos were sophomore Oceane Pelloille (78-75--153, +9) and junior Sammie Pless (80-75--155, +11).

The Broncos will be paired with Oregon State and San Francisco in Tuesday's final round, which is slated to begin with a shotgun start at 9:45 a.m. (MT). Live scoring is not available, but final results will be available at
