SANTA CLARA, Calif. – Santa Clara women's golf is back in action this weekend competing in the 11-team Wyoming Cowgirl Desert Intercollegiate, starting Saturday at the 6,112-yard, par-72 Classic Club in Palm Desert, Calif.
Teams and individuals will play 36 holes of golf Saturday with a single 18-hole final-round on Sunday.
The Broncos are coming off a pair of sixth-place finishes at their first two events of the fall and will compete with Cal Poly, Cal State Bakersfield, Cal State Northridge, Hawai'i, Montana, Montana State, Northern Arizona, Southern Utah, UC Riverside and host Wyoming for the team title.
"I'm really excited to get back out there with my team," head coach Krystal Kelly said. "They are working extremely hard and as a result we had some great scoring during practice this week."
Kelly will field a team that consists of Kristin Le, Annie Freman, Kyleigh Moreno, Chloe Wong and Keilyn Ing. Junior Isabella Salant will compete as an individual. Le had one of her better events of the 2015-16 season right here when she finished tied for third with a 4-over 220. As a team, the Broncos placed fourth among the 14 competing teams.
"Classic Club is a challenging course so we'll have to stick to our game plan," Kelly said of her team's strategy. "Course management will be the key to great scoring."
A shotgun start at 7:30 a.m. PT will get the first day of competition underway. Live scoring will be available at golfstatresults.com.
