Who to watch: Sophomore Alice Kim started the Heather Farr Memorial Invitational with a first-round 75.

She cast that number aside quickly.

A native of Walnut, Calif., Kim carded a school-record 67 in the second round and then a 68 in the third to finish tied for second among individuals. She finished just three shots off the lead.

Did you know? Nickname supremacy will be on the line when UC Davis and New Mexico State take the course. The teams share the Aggies moniker.

Preview: Like Kim, UC Davis got off to a bit of a slow start in its last tournament.

The Aggies shot a 302 in the first round before scoring back-to-back 286s to tab a solid sixth-place finish in a 20-team field at the Heather Farr Memorial Invitational in Boulder, Colo.

Sophomore Chelsea Stelzmiller was the No. 2 UC Davis finisher behind Kim, as her 215 was good for a tie for eighth.

With a bye week in the books, the Aggies hit the course once again at the Price’s GiveEm Five Intercollegiate. The tournament will be UC Davisfourth out-of-state appearance in as many tries this season.
