April 6, 2009
MIAMI LAKES, Fla. - The Washington State women's golf team is in second place after the first day of the Canes & Cardinal Classic held at the par-72, 6,223-yard, Don Shula Golf Resort.
The Cougars posted a 298 (+10) during the opening round and followed it up with a 305 during the afternoon round. They will head into the final round 12 strokes behind No. 21 San Jose State.
'It was a great team effort,' said assistant coach Heather Holte. 'The wind picked up quite a bit during the second round and we did a good job of adapting.'
WSU was led by two freshmen who both finished the first day inside the top 10. Kristen Allard carded a 73 (+1) during the first round on her way to a two-round total of 148. The performance landed her in a three-way tie for fifth going into the final round.
Fellow freshman Andrea Rosete finished second for the Cougars with a total of 150 (+6) on the day. She sits in a tie for ninth after two rounds and will look to notch the first top-10 finish of her career during the closing round tomorrow.
Senior Amy Eneroth finished close behind with a tournament total of 152 (+8). Eneroth will start the third round in a tie for 17th. A top-25 finish for the tournament would be her fifth consecutive, and would mark the 36th of her career.
