ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.—Junior Jenny Coleman set a school record and has a two-stroke lead as the No. 16 University of Colorado women’s golf team is tied for seventh but just eight strokes behind the leader here Monday after two rounds of the 2012 Branch Law Firm/Dick McGuire Invitational. 

Coleman shot 3-under par 70 in both the first and second rounds and through 36-holes is at 6-under par 140 on the 6,192, par 73 yard UNM Championship Course.  Her 6-under score through 36 holes is a school record for a par 73 course, bettering a mark of 3-under par 143 by Jess Wallace on this same course in 2010.   

As a team, the Buffaloes shot identical 6-over par 298 in both rounds and is tied with Pepperdine in seventh place at 12-over par 596.  UNLV leads the event at 4-over par 588, with Ohio State in second place two strokes back at 6-over par 590.  Iowa State (7-over par 591) and Baylor (8-over par 592) are right in the mix while Northwestern (10-over 594) rounds out the top five and UC Davis (11-over par 595) is in sixth ahead of Pepperdine and CU.  

“We’re doing a lot better, it was a big improvement from the first week,” CU coach Anne Kelly said. “Jenny played very well and even left a few shots out there.  Everybody else is very close.  We’re still making mistakes you see in younger players, but I think we all see that and it’s easy to improve on, it’s just a matter of focus and concentration.”

Coleman had a pair of great rounds, in the first round coming up with three birdies, an eagle and two bogeys and in the second round coming up with four birdies and a bogey for her 3-under par rounds.  Both rounds match the second best of her career and her 3-under performances match the best of her career, first set when she shot a 3-under par 69 at Colorado National Golf Club in final round of last year’s NCAA West Regional. 

“Jenny is definitely chipping and putting better than she was last week,” Kelly said. “Her ball-striking is very good, I think she just converted a few more birdie opportunities this week.”

The Buffs held the lead and were in the top two of the team standings throughout the first round before struggling a bit down the stretch and finishing sixth through 18 holes.  The Buffs then got off to a good start in the second round and hovered around third or fourth before slipping a few spots again late in the round.

“We were competing well in both rounds,” Kelly said. “It was fairly windy the last nine holes, it was difficult coming in.  We didn’t finish strong, but we’re in seventh just eight strokes out so it’s a log-jam at the top.  I see a lot of heart from everybody, they’re working hard.  We’re a work in progress, but we’re getting there.”

Junior Kristin Coleman is tied for 24th at 3-over par 149 after shooting even par 73 in the first round and 3-over par 76 in the second round.  She led the Buffs with six birdies in the first round but countered that with two bogeys and two double bogeys.  In the second round, she had two birdies with three bogeys and one double bogey.  She started the second round with 11 straight pars before a double bogey put her at 2-over, but she rebounded with a birdie to get back to 1-over.  She then had three bogeys in the next four holes and ended her day with a birdie to bring it back to 3-over.  

Freshman Allie Zech, playing individually, is tied for 30th after two rounds of 2-over par 75.  She played consistently all day with three birdies and five bogeys in the first round and two birdies and four bogeys in the second round.  She was below par in both rounds and some point and was never above 2-over at any point throughout the 36 holes.  

Freshman Alexis Keating is tied for 43rd at 6-over par 152 with a pair of 3-over par 76 scorecards.  She had 15 pars and three bogeys in the first round with 13 pars, a birdie and four bogeys in the second round.  

Freshman Megan Haase is tied for 55th after shooting a 9-over par 155 with a 6-over par 79 in the first round and improving to shoot a 3-over par 76 in the second round.  She had 12 pars and six bogeys in her first round and one birdie, four bogeys and 13 pars in the second round.  

Freshman Jamie Oleksiew is one stroke behind Haase at 10-over par 156 and is tied for 60th with a 6-over par 79 in the first round and 4-over par 77 in the second.  She had two birdies, four bogeys and two double bogeys in the first round and had three birdies and seven bogeys in the second round. 

The final round gets underway Tuesday with an 8 a.m. shotgun start.
