Last Time on the Course: The Boise State women’s golf team rewrote the record books at the 2008 Western Athletic Conference Women’s Golf Championship as the Broncos carded their lowest single round team score at a conference championship as Lindsey Shean etched her way into the books with a championship single round individual best score of 70 (-2), Wednesday.

Shean entered the final round tied for 16th, but after firing the single best round of the tournament (70), the junior climbed her way up the charts to finish the tournament in eighth to garner her first career top 10 finish. This not only ties a career-low for the Salinas, Calif., native, but tied the single best mark at the 2008 WAC Women’s Golf Championship in the Bronco record books.

As a team, the Broncos fired a final round score of 304 (+16), giving them a combined total of 933 (+69) on the tournament, which landed them in sixth place and marked their best finish at the conference championship since 2005. Fresno State garnered its first team and individual WAC title with a three-round team total of 905 (+41) as Laura Luethke led the way for the Bulldogs with a 220 (+4), while Nevada rounded out the field in the seventh position.
