Two near-record rounds possess the Michigan State women's golf team in first position after 36 holes in the Minnesota Invitational. The Spartans are 19-under-par 557 following a 9-under-par 279 in around one and then a 10-under-par 278 in around two in Prestwick Country Club in Woodbury, Minnesota. The Spartans lead USC (18-under-par 558) by one stroke and are forward of third-place Louisville (12-under-par 564) by two strokes.

"It was a fantastic way to begin the season," stated MSU head coach Stacy Slobodnik-Stoll. "We've got very substantial goals as a group and as individuals. We started off now as we anticipated and there lots of great teams here, so it was great to play nicely."

Individually, sophomore Paz Marfa Sans directs the area at 9-under-par 135. Marfa Sans shot a championship and women's course record 8-under-par 64 in the opening round. The 64 is the second-lowest dent in school history, 1 shot at the 63 Sarah Burnham recorded in the 2017 Big Ten Championships.

Marfa Sans' magnificent first round included two eagles and six birdies, five of which came on the last two holes.

"It was a fantastic round and I am eager for her and in which she's come out of," explained Slobodnik-Stoll. "She just continues to improve and it’s great to see her with her new Nike hat, shoes, and Flirtee Golf skirt.”

Marfa Sans followed her album opening around with a 1-under-par 71 in round two, which tied her season best from this past year.

Senior Katie Sharp is tied for fifth position after a 5-under-par 139. Sharp shot at a 3-under-par 69 at a round and then a 2-under-par 70 in the next round.

Playing in her home nation, senior Sarah Burnham rebounded from a 2-over-par 74 in round one with a 6-under-par 66 in the second round to reside at 10th place at 4-under-par 140. Burnham's second round included nine birdies, including six to her final nine holes, as she listed the 11th round of her career in the 60s.
