Oct. 6, 2006
FRESNO, Calif. - With three tournaments under her belt, sophomore Jennifer Shipley has had a solid start in her second year as a Bulldog. After leading the Bulldog line-up in the first two tournaments, Shipley has shown both consistency and talent.
She tied for third at the Ptarmigan Ram Fall Classic with a three round total of 1-under par (70-70-75 - 215) and tied for 11th at the Salbasgeon Suites Invitational (76-74-73 - 223) last month. In addition, Shipley, a Clovis, Calif. native, was named the Toyota/Gobulldogs.com Athlete of the Week for the week of September 11th and was named Septembers Western Athletic Conference Golfer of the Month. Shipley has already received many honors for her success in the classroom as well as out on the course. Last year, Shipley received Academic All-WAC honors, was an Academic All-American, and was a member on the Dean's list.
