FORT COLLINS, Colo.—Freshman Alexis Keating led the way for the No. 16 University of Colorado women’s golf team as the Buffaloes sit in 12th place at the Colonel Wollenberg’s Ptarmigan Ram Fall Classic through two rounds after the opening day of the 2012-13 season here at the Ptarmigan Country Club. 

Keating shot identical rounds of 2-over par 74 to sit at 4-over par 148 and is tied for 16th individually.  The Buffs sit at 34-over par 610 after a 12-over par 300 in the first round and 22-over par 310 in the second.  

Texas Tech leads the way with an 11-stroke lead after shooting 1-under par 575 through the two rounds.  New Mexico sits second at 10-over par 586, Louisville third at 13-over par 589, Baylor fourth at 15-over par 591 while UNLV and Nevada are tied for fifth at 18-over par 594. 

“It was a rough afternoon,” CU coach Anne Kelly said. “We are a young team and it’s definitely a learning experience.  It’s a long season and we will be building throughout the year.  We are a talented team, but we are young and inexperienced.  We will get to work on a few weak areas I’m seeing as a team.”

Keating got a par on her first career collegiate hole, and then had bogeys on her next two holes.  She rebounded to shoot even the rest of the way with two birdies and two bogeys, including a birdie on her first hole of the first round to stay at 2-over par 74.  She was solid most of the way through her second round, sitting at even par through 15 holes in the second round before bogeys on two of her final three holes to finish her second round at 2-over 72.  

Junior Kristin Coleman had the best round of the day for the Buffs with a 1-over par 73 in the first round and she followed that up with an 8-over par 80 in the second round to sit tied for 42nd at 9-over par 153.  She got off to a great start with 10 straight pars and a birdie to sit at 1-under par.  She closed out her last seven holes with five pars and two bogeys.  She was 1-over par through 12 holes in the second round with three birdies and four bogeys before a rough finish that saw her shoot 7-over on the final six holes of her day. 

Junior Jenny Coleman is tied for 52nd at 10-over par 154 after identical 5-over par 77s in each round.  She had a nine on the par 5 No. 14 on her second hole of the day but responded, shooting 1-over par on the last 17 holes with three birdies and four bogeys.  In the second round, she had one birdie, two bogeys and two double bogeys.  

Freshman Allie Zech is tied for 60th at 11-over par 155 after a first round 4-over par 76 and a second round 7-over par 79.  She had a double bogey to start her college career but settled down and shot 2-over on her final 17 holes of the first round. She was then sitting at 1-over par through 11 holes in her second round before finishing her final seven holes at 6-over par with two double bogeys.  

Freshman Jamie Olkesiew is also tied for 60th at 11-over par 155 after a 5-over par 77 in the first round and 6-over par 78 in the second round.  A see-saw first round included six pars, five birdies, five bogeys, a double and triple bogey.  She started her college career with a birdie and the end of her first collegiate round saw her have no pars in the last seven holes.  She closed out the round bogey-bogey-birdie-double bogey-birdie-triple bogey-birdie.  She had a more consistent second round with 12 pars and aside from two double bogeys, she played the other 16 holes at 2-over par.  

Freshman Megan Haase is tied for 72nd with a 15-over par 159 after a first round 7-over par 79 and an 8-over par 80.  She had a solid first round in which she was 3-over through the first 17 holes but ended the round with a quadruple bogey, getting a 9 on the par 5 No. 14, the same hole in which Coleman had a nine earlier in the round.  Otherwise, she had two birdies, three bogeys and a double bogey on the other 17 holes.  In the second round, she had a rough patch of four holes in which she was 6-over par as she made the turn to the front nine and otherwise she was 2-over par on the other 14 holes with a birdie and three bogeys.  

Senior Devin Dougherty is in 78th after an 18-over par 162.  She did rebound after shooting a 13-over par 85 in the first round to knock eight strokes off her score with a 5-over par 77 in the second, her career best round.  In the first round, she had seven pars, nine bogeys and two double bogeys.  In the second round, she had one birdie and six bogeys and at one point was 1-over par through 10 holes.  

Her previous career best round was a 78 in the third round of the Heather Farr Memorial Invitational at Interlocken Resort in 2009.  

The Buffs conclude the first event of the season Tuesday with the third round, a shotgun start at 8:30 a.m.  After that, the Buffs head to Albuquerque, N.M., for the Branch Law Firm Dick McGuire New Mexico Invitational on Sept. 17-18.
