Broncos in Second in Hawaii
Oct. 22, 2014

WAHIAWA, Hawaii - Junior Samantha Martin is one of three members of the Boise State women's golf team in the top 10 following the first two rounds of the Rainbow Wahine Invitational, Wednesday.

Martin, in third place individually and one of only three individuals under par through 36 holes, and sophomores Dana Clary and Genevieve Ling have the Broncos in second place, trailing only 17th-ranked Vanderbilt entering Thursday's final round.

Martin followed an even-par 72 with a 1-under 71 (143, -1) at the 6,228-yard Leilehua Golf Course. She trails tournament leader Kendall Martindale of Vanderbilt by four strokes entering the final round.

Clary is tied for seventh place following rounds of 70-77 (147, +3), while Ling is tied for 10th at 148 (71-77, +4).

Clary's opening-round 2-under 70 was a career low.

The Broncos posted rounds of 290-303, and at 593 (+17), will enter the final round of the tournament in second place. Boise State trails the No. 17 Commodores (574, -2) by 19 strokes, and holds a five-stroke advantage over third-place Nebraska.

The Broncos moved into a tie for first place with Vanderbilt during the second round, but the Commodores fired a 2-under 286 to move away from the field.

Junior Sammie Pless (77-78--155, +11) will enter the final round two strokes back of the top 25, and sophomore Oceane Pelloille rounded out the scoring for the Broncos at 161 (82-79, +17).

The first round of the Rainbow Wahine Invitational was initially scheduled for Tuesday, but heavy rain forced two rounds to be played Wednesday. The final round of the tournament is scheduled to begin with a shotgun start at noon (MT), Thursday. Live scoring is available HERE.
