FRESNO, Calif. - Fresno State tied for third place Wednesday at the Western Athletic Conference Women's Golf Championships after shooting rounds of 309-317-313 - 939 at Coyote Creek Golf Course in San Jose, Calif.
Jennifer Shipley led the way for the Bulldogs, as she acquired her fourth top-10 finish of the year with seventh place. She shot rounds of 77-78-76 for a 231 total, four strokes off individual champion Jenelle Gomez of San Jose State.
San Jose State won the team title with 922 and New Mexico State finished second with 931.
Also announced today, Luethke was named to the first-team all-WAC and Shipley was selected to the second-team all-WAC.
"Both Laura and Jennifer had good spring seasons with some very respectable finishes, and are very deserving of the awards they received," said head coach Angie Cates. "For Fresno State to have two golfers named to the all-conference teams, I think it's a good sign of where our program is heading."
The NCAA Western Regional is scheduled for May 11-13. Fresno State will await word on any possible postseason competition.
