Cal in 1st After Two Rounds of Ram Fall Classic

Sept. 10, 2007

FORT COLLINS, Colo. - The California women's golf team is in first place after the first two rounds of the Ptarmigan Ram Fall Classic Monday at the Ptarmigan Country Club. The Golden Bears opened the 2007 fall season with a score of even-par 288 and followed that effort with a five-over 293 to finish the day at 581.

Colorado, which won the tournament last year, is in second place at 592, and Brigham Young is third at 596. Washington State is third at 597, and Idaho is fifth at 598 at the 20-team event.

Campbell's Mary Mattson leads the individual competition at two-under 142, and Cal junior Shannon Yocum is second at 144. Bears freshman Pia Halbig is tied for third at 145. Yocum carded a round of one-over to start the day and finished with a score of one-under 71 after sinking birdies on four of her final five holes. Halbig, who hails from Germany, started her collegiate career with a score of one-under on the strength of four birdies.

Cal's other three golfers - junior Allison Goodman and sophomores Sofia Janer and Roseanne Niven - are tied for 18th at 148. Niven fired a one-under in the first round to equal her team's low round today. Goodman scattered seven birdies over two rounds, and Janer had six birdies and an eagle on the par five, fifth hole to begin the second round.

The 54-hole tournament concludes tomorrow with 18 holes. Cal will be in search of its first team title since the Bears claimed the Oregon Invitational March 21-22, 2005.
