PULLMAN, Wash. – Balbina Guajardo and Taylor Camany paced the Santa Clara University women's golf team during the first day of its 2012-13 season-opening tournament hosted by Washington State. The Broncos rest in a tie for tenth, with Guajardo and Camany (pictured) both among the field's top 32.
The Broncos came in ranked above Portland State, Montana State and Eastern Washington. SCU out-played those three schools, but could not move into the event's top tier following Monday's 36 holes. Santa Clara Head Coach Krystal Kelly has a pair of true freshmen making their college debut's in a field that includes Pac-12 Conference program's No. 10 Cal and No. 75 Washington State.
WCC rivals Gonzaga and BYU are also part of the 14-team field that will tee it up for final-round play Tuesday morning.
