WINDSOR, Colo. - The Kansas State women's golf team began the 2013 season Monday with a 22-over par 310 in the first round and was moving up the leaderboard in the second round when play was suspended at Colorado State's Ptarmigan Ram Classic at the par-72, 6,352-yard Ptarmigan Country Club.
K-State jumped from 11th place after round one to eighth place midway through the second round when play was suspended due to inclement weather.
"It was a slow start for some of our players today, but there are hanging around and competing," said head coach Kristi Knight.
Junior Olivia Eliasson was 3-under par in round two before play was suspended. After carding a 7-over par 79 in the first round, she improved 38 spots on the leaderboard and is tied for 11th entering play on Tuesday.
Carly Ragains, who shot a 1-over par 73 in the first round, is tied for 23rd through 31 holes at 6-over par. She led the field by shooting 4-under on the course's par 5 holes.
Making her collegiate debut, Katherine Gravel-Coursol sits in a tie for 48th place after carding a 6-over par 72 in round one, while she is 5-over par in round two. Two strokes behind her were teammates Gianna Misenhelter and Madison Talley, who both shot 8-over par 80s in the opening round.
California sits on the top of the leaderboard at 10-over par. UNLV's Dana Finkelstein takes a five-shot lead into Tuesday's play at 6-under par.
