MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. – The young University of Idaho team struggled over the more than 100-year old Minikahda Club course Monday and is 11th after two rounds of the Minnesota Invitational.

“We struggled in all areas of the game,” coach Lisa Johnson said after the Vandals’ rounds of 324-324 left them at 648. “You can’t get away with hitting an errant tee shot. It will penalize you. If you don’t make smart decisions out of the rough, it’s more likely to cost you strokes here than on some easier course.”

Leilanie Kim had the team’s low rounds and is tied for 21st at 155. Cassie McKinley is five strokes back at 160 and in a tie for 40th, while freshman Amy Hasenoehrl – playing in her first collegiate tournament, is tied for 44th at 162. Rachel Choi and Mary Sweeney are in a group tied for 61st at 171.

“I’m hopeful we will play much better (Tuesday),” Johnson said. “Maybe having played it will give them a better idea of what a good score is and what a manageable score is.”
