No. 26 Denver Tied for Lead after Round One of Ron Moore Women’s Intercollegiate

Oct. 6, 2017


HIGHLANDS RANCH, Colo. – The No. 26-ranked University of Denver women’s golf team used a late surge on the back nine to rise up the leaderboard late on Friday, finishing tied for the lead after one round of the Ron Moore Women’s Intercollegiate. The Pioneers fired a team score of 283 (5-under).

Par for the 6,450-yard course was 72 at the Highlands Ranch Golf Club.

DU shrugged off a rough start on the front nine to get it going over its last nine holes of the afternoon, despite some windy and chilly conditions, to close out the day in a tie with New Mexico.

The Lobo’s Ingrid Guiterrez is the leader in the clubhouse after 18 holes at 6-under, one stroke ahead of Ellie Slama of Oregon State.

Interim head coach Kolton Lapa went the lineup of Sophie Newlove, Lauren Whyte, Mary Weinstein, Jessica Dreesbeimdieke and Camille Enright for the main team.

Newlove, the defending individual medalist, picked up right where she left off last year with a strong opening-round score of 3-under, putting her in a tie for fourth. The low round tied her career best as a Pioneer.



Both Weinstein and Enright each tied for 11th after day one. The pair of sophomores each posted a 1-under 71 for the round.

Dreesbeimdieke closed strong on Friday to end up tied for 19th at even par. She got hot over her final six holes, going 2-under during the stretch.

Whyte finished up her first day on the course in a tie for 29th at 1-over.

Maggie Cowart, Sonya Knebel, Anni Heck and Caroline Klemp also competed as their own team, ending in 14th after opening-round play.

Cowart shot a career-best 74 during her 18 holes on Friday.

Second-round play is set for Saturday with a starting tee time of 9 a.m. MT
