BYU golf: White stands in 13th, Cougars in eighth at Cowgirl Classic
Freshman Alexandra White tied in 13th place to lead the BYU women's golf team to an eighth place standing after day one of the Cowgirl Classic.
BYU tied in eighth place with Portland State at 36-over-par and trailed first-place New Mexico State by 19 strokes in the 54-hole tournament.
"Each round we had a couple of girls play well and a couple of girls struggle a little bit," BYU women's golf coach Carrie Roberts said. "It was a long day and it was a challenging course. We just need to hit the ball a little bit better and give ourselves some chances."
White's 13th place finished 6-over-par after two rounds with two birdies in the first round. Her first round score of 73 was a team low for the day.
The Cougars play the final round of the tournament on Tuesday at the Ak-Chin Southern Dunes Golf Course.
