MEMPHIS, Tenn. (10/25/2010) - Jenna Leurquin fired a 5-over 76 on round one to lead Boise State University’s women’s golf team at the University of Memphis Invitational Monday afternoon. The Broncos as a team recorded a 33-over 317 to sit tied for fifth place out of 18 teams at the tournament being played at Ridgeway Country Club in Memphis, Tenn. Two rounds were scheduled to be completed Monday but the second round was stopped short because of darkness.

The scores were high on the first day of the tournament with the Memphis Lady Tigers leading their own tournament after round one by tallying a 21-over 305 Monday morning. They held a two-stroke lead over Mississippi State who shot 23-over 307. Boise State started the second round tied with the University of Cincinnati for fifth-place at 317 (+33) and 12 strokes out of first place.

Boise State had nearly completed the second round with only Jenna Leurquin not finishing with one hole to go. However, several teams still had three to five holes remaining in the second round when the second round was stopped. It will be completed Tuesday morning before the third is staged. The Broncos were tied for fourth when the tournament halted Monday night.

Leurquin recorded the top score of the first round for Boise State with a 5-over 76 and was in a seven person logjam for sixth place. Mississippi State’s Erika Thornton had the lead after the first 18 holes at even-par 71.

Hayley Young was second for the Broncos firing a 6-over 77 to finish the round tied for 13th. Lori Harper was tied for 30th after 18 holes with a 9-over 80, followed by Jennifer Henningsson at 13-over 84 and Michelle Gooding at 19-over 90.
