Oct. 22, 2012
LAS VEGAS, NV. Oct. 22, 2012- After two rounds at the Las Vegas Collegiate Showdown, the Penn State women's golf team has climbed the leaderboard and finds itself in sole possession of second place. The Nittany Lions shot a second round 298, improving from their day one score of 300. After two rounds, the Nittany Lions have a total of 598, leaving them at 22 over par with one round left to play.
Junior Christina Vosters (Bethany Beach, Del.) really came into her own in the second round, posting an impressive 71 with tough course conditions. Vosters is at even par for the tournament and is leading second place Ally McDonald of Mississippi State. Vosters second round score of 71 was tied for the lowest score of the day. Senior Emily Ransone (Hilliard, Ohio) also had a very good day, posting a second round score of 74, improving her first round score by three strokes. After two rounds completed, Ransone is at seven over par and is tied for 16th place.
Coach Denise St. Pierre was very impressed with Vosters performance, particularly because of the tough course conditions that played a major factor today. "The team did very well today with the winds gusting up to 30 mph. Having one of the lowest rounds in the field helped move us up into second place. Christina had a wonderful day and I am very proud of her leading the entire field."
The third and final round of the Las Vegas Collegiate Showdown will take place tomorrow, Oct. 23, 2012 with a shotgun start at 10:45 a.m. Live scoring can be followed on www.golfstat.com
