ST. GEORGE, Utah The Boise State University women’s golf team concluded the BYU Dixie Classic at the Entrada Golf Course at Snow Canyon, Wednesday, in 12th place with a 935 (+71).

 

The team began the 16-team tournament by firing a 309 (+21) in rounds one and two to stand tied for eighth place but the team’s 317 (+29) in round three pushed them out of the top 10.
