CORVALLIS, Ore. - Three members of the Boise State University women’s golf team finished in the top 25 at the Giustina Memorial Classic hosted by Oregon State, Tuesday.

 

In her first collegiate competition as Boise State’s No. 1 golfer, senior Nikki Olson led the Broncos as she remained consistent throughout the tournament en route to finishing tied for seventh place with a 224 (+8). This is the best finish in Olson’s two year tenure with the program, eclipsing her previous mark of 234 (+18) set last season at the BYU Dixie Classic. Olson’s second round score of 73 (+1) was just one stroke away from matching her career low round of 72 (E) which she set at the BYU Dixie Classic. This is the first top 25 finish of Olson’s career.

 

Iris Ocariza finished tied for 20th place with a 230 (+14) to capture her sixth top 25 performance in just her 12th collegiate competition. At the Giustina Memorial Classic, Ocariza shot a 75 (+3) in the first round and followed it with another 75 (+3) in the second but she posted an 80 (+8) in the final round to fall back of the pace.

 

Mandi Hedberg registered a 231 (+15) to finish tied for 24th place. This is her first top 25 finish since the Baja Invitational last February and her sixth overall. Hedberg began the tournament by shooting a 75 (+5) but fell back after registering an 80 (+8) in the second. She then fired a 76 (+4) in the final round to move up the leader board into a tie for 24th.

 

As a team the Broncos finished in sixth place with a 922 (+58), one stroke ahead of Western Athletic Conference rival Fresno State.

 

Also recording scores for Boise State were Lindsey Shean who finished tied for 31st with a 237 (+21) and Jana Mosesson who tied for 46th place with a 257 (+41).

 

The Boise State women’s golf team will continue its season Oct. 1-2, at the Heather Farr Invitational at Denver, Colo.
