LAS CRUCES, N.M. - The University of Idaho women's golf team overcame a rocky start to finish tied for fifth at the Price's Give 'Em Five Intercollegiate at New Mexico State University.

Junior Kaitlyn Oster led the way with her one-over 215 to tie for fourth. Oster's total included a hole in one during the second round. Also for Idaho, Cassie McKinley tied for 17th at 222, Leilanie Kim tied for 27th with a 225, Amy Hasenoehrl tied for 45th with a 229, and Kristin Strankman tied for 49th with a 230.

Coach Lisa Johnson was pleased with the Vandals' effort after a 304 in the first round.

"We had a good tournament despite our first round," said Johnson, whose team finished with a  287 and a 296 for a 54-hole 887. "We came back and showed a lot of toughness and played a lot better in the final two rounds."

A season-long nemesis haunted the Vandals again Wednesday.

"We really struggled with the putter," Johnson said. "We hit the ball well but we had too many three-putts."

Portland State, with medalist A Ram Choi (208), won the tournament with an 867.
