Folsom Lake College’s women’s golf team placed fifth in the third Big 8 Conference Tournament held Tuesday at Whitney Oaks Golf Club. The Falcons shot a 405 to finish behind winner Sac City’s 355, Modesto (364), Delta (365) and Sierra (398). While the Falcons were a little disappointed with their overall place, coach Mark Hatala was pleased with the team’s 23-stroke improvement over last year’s score on the same course. Lesley Winford led the way for Folsom Lake by shooting a 90. Kristin Daniels shot a 94 for a 21-stroke improvement from last year, while Heather LaVergne improved 22 strokes en route to her 102. The Falcons play in the fourth Big 8 Conference tournament on Thursday at Bing Maloney. On Tuesday the Falcons will host the fifth tournament at Empire Ranch beginning at noon.
