The Santa Clara women's golf team had one of their best starts of the year today at the Lampkin Cup Cal Poly Invitational, shooting a team score of 302 in the first round with their A Team.
Super freshman Miki Ueoka shot the team's first under par round of the year and currently sits in second place at -2, two strokes behind the new course record from the women's white tees that was set today.
"We've really been working towards winning a tournament, and we knew we had to shoot at least a 305 to be in contention," said head coach Polly Schulze. "We're just three shots off and I know that we can pull a team and individual victory out."
Santa Clara's A Team is tied with Cal Poly at +11 and three shots off of the favorite, UC Riverside. That team consists of Ueoka, Corey Utsurogi who shot a three-over 75, Katie Sharpe (78), Katherine Suarez (79), and Erin Sullivan (84).
The Broncos will look to carry the momentum of their best round of the year into tomorrow's second round.
