Women's Golf In 13th At SJSU Invitational

March 5, 2002

SALINAS, Calif. - -

Oregon State junior Stacie Ferguson shot a 76 in the second round of the San Jose State Spartan Invitational on Tuesday to lead the women's golf team.

After two rounds, OSU is in 13th with a score of 624 after shooting 312 in each round. Teams will play the final 18 holes Wednesday morning at the par-72, 5,938-yard Corral de Tierra Country Club.

Ferguson, who opened with a 75 Monday, is among four players tied for 27th at 151.

'She's playing well,' 12th-year OSU coach Rise Lakowske said of Ferguson. 'There were a couple holes that came up and got her where she made double bogey when she hit a bad shot off the tee, but she's been very consistent though.'

Ashlei Pendleton is five shots back of Ferguson at 156 after shooting a 79 Tuesday. She is among three tied for 45th.

Freshman Alex Lucio showed marked improvement over her first round 87 with a 76 Tuesday. She stands at 163.

Laura Skinner and Kelly Ferris are tied for 63rd at 161.

'It's very frustrating for them, because they are capable of playing so much better, and they know it,' Lakowske said. 'They're on the road to playing a lot better, they just have to think it.'

'This is a good course. The greens have been the most difficult aspect so far - that's where we're having trouble. We're just going to have to come out and pull the trigger tomorrow.'

South Carolina's Kristy McPherson has a three shot lead over USC's Mikaela Parmlid and Pepperdine's Lindsey Wright after totaling a 4-under 140.

California and No. 25 New Mexico State are neck-and-neck for the team crown, with Cal's 589 good for a slim one-stroke lead over the Aggies. Sixteenth-ranked Pepperdine and No. 19 Washington are two shots out of the lead.
