STANFORD, Calif. - The Washington State women's golf team finished its first round of competition at the Stanford Intercollegiate ahead of six teams ranked in the top 50 by Golfweek and 10th overall.

In a field consisting of 18 teams, with 11 ranked in the top 30, the Cougar women face elite competition at the par-71, 6,029-yard Stanford Golf Course.

The Cougars fired a first round total of 306 and were led by junior Amy Eneroth and freshman Allison Travis who sit in a tie for 24th. Eneroth and Travis carded a 4-over par 75 and are only two strokes from cracking the top 20. Travis opened her season and career well as she is playing in her first collegiate tournament.

"Allison played great and looked very impressive out there today," Washington State University Head Coach Walt Williams said. "As a team we played pretty well and finished ahead of where we were predicted to finish. If we can make a little bit stronger finish coming into the end of the round tomorrow I feel we can move up the leaderboard and stay competitive."

Senior Brooke Henderson also fared well in the first round of play as she shot a 5-over 76, good for a tie for 39th. Junior Jessica Black shot an 80 and senior Tracy Broders carded an 82 to round out the Cougar contingent.

The Cougars begin the second round of play Saturday, from the 10th hole at 8:30 a.m.
