Locke Leads Cal Poly in Fresno State Lexus Classic

FRESNO, Calif. -- Kirsten Locke is tied for 16th place, leading Cal Poly's performance in the first two rounds of the Fresno State Lexus Classic women's golf tournament on Monday at the Copper River Country Club.

Coach Scott Cartwright's Mustangs are 14th in the 15-team field with one more round to be played Tuesday morning on the 6,212-yard, par-72 course.

Tulsa leads the way with an 18-over-par 594 total, three shots ahead of Long Beach State and seven in front of third-place UC Irvine. Cal Poly posted a four-person 36-hole 46-over-par 622 aggregate with a 316 in the morning round and 306 in the afternoon.

Locke (pictured at right) carded rounds of 74 and 77 for a seven-over-par 151 total. She was tied for ninth place after her morning round before strong afternoon winds made play much more difficult for all golfers in the field.

Other Cal Poly scores included an 82 and 74 for a 156 total and 47th place by Asia Adell, a pair of 79s for a 158 total and 53rd place by Taylor Yoshitake and an 81 and 77 for a 158 total and 53rd place by Morgan Thomas.

Alex Phillips rounded out Cal Poly's total with an 84 and 78 for a 162 total and a 70th-place tie.

Individual co-leaders after 36 holes are Simone Hoey of Long Beach State and Luciane Lee of UC Irvine with three-under-par 141 totals. Hoey shot 72 and 69 while Lee carded 70 and 71. One stroke back of the pair is Sammi Stevens of New Mexico with rounds of 73 and 69 for a 142 total.

Defending team champion Cal State Fullerton is 12th after 36 holes.
