    FRESNO, Calif. - The Fresno State women's golf team heads to Stanford, Calif., to compete Saturday and Sunday in the 14-team Peg Bernard Invitational at the Stanford Golf Course.

    Two rounds will be played in the tournament, with shotgun starts at 8:30 a.m. for the first round and 8 a.m. for the final round. The par-72 course will play at 6,168 yards.

    Fresno State's lineup consists of Laura Luethke, Adrianna Chico, Brittany Cooley, Taylor Siebert and Marissa Patterson. Jennifer Shipley will miss the tournament due to injury.

    "Unfortunately, Jennifer's injury means she will not be able to travel with us this week. She should be back in the lineup in time for the WAC Championship, though," said head coach Angie Cates.

    Luethke, who is coming off a third-place finish at the Oregon Duck Invitational, currently owns a 75.08 scoring average. She also has six top-20 finishes on the year. Chico has consistently contributed scores to the team total while traveling to all but one tournament.

    This weekend's tournament becomes Cooley's fourth event that she has qualified to compete in this spring. Siebert, who opened the season with three top-15 finishes, is averaging 78.20 strokes per round. Patterson is in Fresno State's lineup for the first time in her career. She competed as an individual at the Bulldogs' home tournament in February.

    "We are taking five players who have been working hard, and I am confident we'll have a good tournament this weekend," said Cates. "The course is incredibly wet, but we've been dealing with the same conditions here in Fresno, so we are prepared."
