by Gary Baines
Mary Weinstein of Regis University shares the lead individually, and fellow Coloradan Alex Trask, of William Jewell College in Missouri, is tied for eighth place after Wednesday’s opening round of the Women’s NCAA Division II Finals in Findlay, Ohio.
Weinstein (pictured), winner of two Junior Golf Alliance of Colorado majors and the 5A girls state high school title in 2016, shot a 1-over-par 73 along with three other players. The freshman made two birdies and three bogeys on the day.
Weinstein originally wasn’t in the field for the DII Finals, but when another player had to drop out, the Coloradan was added. She’s the first Regis University women’s golfer to compete in the national championship tournament, which runs through Saturday.
Meanwhile, Trask carded a round of 3-over 75 on Wednesday, making four birdies, five bogeys and a double bogey.
