LAS CRUCES, N.M. (10/11/2010) - Hayley Young and Jenna Leurquin fired first-round scores of 2-over 74 during today’s opening session at New Mexico State University’s Price’s Give`Em Five Collegiate in Las Cruces.  The duo is currently tied for 18th-place, nine strokes out of first. The Broncos as a whole recorded their second-best single round score of the fall with a 13-over 301 to finished the day in ninth-place out of 14 teams.

Leading the team competition is Baylor University who shot 3-under 285 on Monday. The Bears hold a one-stroke lead over UC Irvine who sits at 2-under 286.
