|Idaho sixth after day one|
PULLMAN, Wash. - The University of Idaho women's golf team is sixth after the first 36 holes of the annual WSU Cougar Cup at Palouse Ridge Golf Club.
"We finished our last nine holes very well," coach Lisa Johnson said. "I was extremely encouraged by that. Our plan is to build on that performance.
