VERONA, WISC. - The University of California women's golf team is continuing its strong 2008 fall season as the Golden Bears are leading the Badger Invitational in Verona, Wisconsin after the first two rounds with a +17 593 following 36 holes Saturday. The Golden Bears, playing at the 6,216-yard, par-72 University Ridge Golf Course, are being paced by sophomore Pia Halbig, who is tied for second with Illinois' Haley Koschmann with a one-under 143 (73, 70). As a team, Cal is ahead of the host Badgers (296, 306 - 602, +26) and Minnesota (314, 290 - 604, +28). The Bears are fresh off of winning their opening fall tournament, the Ptarmigan Ram Fall Classic in Fort Collins, Colo., back on Sept. 8-9.

The other top Cal competitor is freshman Angela Villela, who is tied for eighth with a three-over 153 (72, 75). Seniors Allison Goodman (75, 75 - 150 +6) and Shannon Yocum (76, 77 - 153 +9) sit tied for 16th and 19th, respectively, while freshman Diane Kwon is tied for 24th (72, 76 - 154 +10).

"We are definitely playing pretty solidly after a long trip," said Cal coach Nancy McDaniel. "We have started strong and now we have to finish strong. We are looking to represent the west and we need to do so with a solid round tomorrow (Sunday). The team won't be happy without coming back with a defining win. Pia (Halbig) is in good position and there is no doubt in my mind that she will be vying for the championship."
