FRESNO, Calif. - The women's golf team placed seventh out of 20 teams today at the CU Heather Farr Memorial at the Omni Interlocken Golf Course in Broomfield, Colo. The Bulldogs finished 23-over after two rounds with scores of 303 and 296.

Laura Luethke, celebrating her 21st birthday today, led the Bulldogs today in fifth with two rounds of 72. At even par, she is just three strokes away from the leader.

"Laura played really good today, she was very consistent and her swing looks great," said Angie Cates. "She is a lot more confident this year and she is definitely within striking distance to win this tournament."

Hali Coppin shot a 77 and a 73 to finish six-over tied for 27th place. Taylor Siebert tied for 29th place with a 79 and 72. Pia Escandon tied for 47th place with 10-over par. Tiffany Derksen tied for 90th at 21-over.

"The second round today was great," Cates said. "Counting two 72's and a 73 was phenomenal. The players have been working so hard and they are more mentally tough as the year goes on and you can see that in their scores."

Colorado and Oklahoma are currently tied for first with 12-over par. Idaho is in third and Colorado State is in fourth and UC Davis and Hawaii are tied for fifth.

The current individual leader is Colorado's Dominique Pytlewski with 3-under par 141.

The third and final round will begin Tuesday morning at 8:30 with a shotgun start. For live updates go to http://cubuffs.statsgeek.com/golf-w/live/2007hf/.
