It was a long day with great weather and a good set up on a tough golf course,” head coach Josey Stender said. “We got off to a great start. We were very confident. We were putting well, sticking to our game plan and put ourselves in a good position after Round 1. Round 2, I think we had some very costly errant shots that were tough to recover from on this type of golf course.”

Gonzalez shot a 71 (-1) in the opening round of the event. She followed that up with a second round of 72 score of even-par and is at 143 (-1) after two rounds for a tie for 10th place.

“Overall, Jadan should be very proud of the position she’s put herself in,” Stender said.

Tomine Bjerkelo is in a tie for 74th at 155 (+11). She recorded rounds of 80 (+8) and 75 (+3). Kyla Wilde and Morgan Ryan are tied for 80th at 156 (+12). Wilde had rounds of 75 (+3) and 81 (+9) with Ryan adding rounds of 79 (+7) and 77 (+5). Samantha Spielman is at 160 (+16) after the first two-rounds of play.

Grace Dunkleberger and Sophie Spiva are playing as individuals. Dunkleberger had rounds of 75 (+3) and 78 (+6) sitting in tie at 62nd place at nine-over. Sophie Spiva is in tied for 81st place with rounds of 75 (+3) and 80 (+8).

Sacramento State leads the field by nine strokes at seven-under par. Long Beach State is in second followed by New Mexico. Emma Bunch of New Mexico State and Leia Chung of Boise State lead the field at eight-under par.

University of Wyoming’s Top 50 Football Players

During the summer of 2021, 7220Sports.com counted down the Top 50 football players in University of Wyoming history, presented by Premier Bone & Joint Centers, Worthy of Wyoming.

The rules are simple: What was the player's impact while in Laramie? That means NFL stats, draft status or any other accolade earned outside of UW is irrelevant when it comes to this list.

This isn't a one-man job. This task called for a panel of experts. Joining 7220's Cody Tucker are Robert GagliardiJared NewlandRyan Thorburn, and Kevin McKinney.

We all compiled our own list of 50 and let computer averages do the work. Think BCS -- only we hope this catalog is fairer.
