Women's Golf Improves Position After Second-Round at Sahalee
Oct. 7, 2008
SAMMAMISH, Wash. - The Washington State women's golf team improved significantly on its second round of the Edean Ihlanfeldt Invitational held at the 6,127-yard, par-72 Sahalee Country Club. The Cougars knocked twenty strokes off their first-round score and moved ahead four spots on the team leaderboard.
Freshman Lauren Howell led the Cougars on the second day of competition posting a 3-over-par 75. The score is the lowest any WSU golfer has carded so far this tournament.
Seniors Amy Eneroth and Jessica Black both finished today with a score of 76 (+4). Eneroth has a two-day total of 152 and is currently tied for eighth place. Black finished the second day in a tie for 20th, and sits only two strokes back of her senior teammate with a two-day total of 154.
'The freshmen really stepped up today and made a huge improvement from the first round,' said Cougar Head Coach Walt Williams. 'And as a result we moved up four places in a very strong field.'
Tomorrow the WSU women will be paired with cross-state rivals from Washington with tee times beginning at 8 a.m. The Cougars enter the third round nine strokes out of fifth place and 10 strokes out of third place.
'To move up any more we will have to limit the big numbers that invariably get you at Sahalee unless you are really focused,' Williams said.
