KUNA, Idaho - The Santa Clara University women's golf squad concluded its play at the Boise State Fall Classic with a season-best score of 316 Tuesday afternoon at the Falcon Crest Golf Club in Kuna, Idaho.

The Broncos, whose previous best score this season was the 327 they posted during the final round of the Lady Vandal Classic, had two players fire rounds in the 70's.

Nikki Mack shot a final round 76 to finish in a tie for 40th with a two-round score of 160, while Candice Palmer fired a 78 Tuesday to end the tournament tied for 52nd with a two day total of 164.

Courtney Dimpel-Composti improved her second round score by one shot, finishing the day with an 83 and an overall total of 165 which placed her in a tie for 58th. Meggie Fagundes, who shot the best round on day one, followed her 80 with a second round 86 moving her into a tie for 62nd for the tournament.

Deanna Slaman rounded out the Bronco scoring on Tuesday with her final round 80, seven shots better than Monday. Slaman finished the tournament in a tie for 67th place with her two day total of 167.

"We are getting to where we want to be," said head coach Polly Schulze. "We had the most improved score of any team that played out there today, so the progress is very evident which is encouraging."

The Broncos will not return to action until February 18-19, 2003, when they participate in the Bay Area Classic hosted by California.
