Lady Raiders shoot third-best round of the day at SBC ChampionshipsApril 20, 2004 · MT Media Relations
"Almost everybody improved on their rounds from Monday and that was real encouraging," said head coach Rachael Moore. "We are on pace to have our best finish and score down here if we continue to play steady golf. We're only a few strokes back of third place and need a great round on Wednesday to finish this thing up on a high note."
New Mexico State and Denver are deadlocked at 600 and share the overall lead, while Arkansas State is in third with a 623.
Junior Kristin Lynch tied for the fifth-best round of the day with a 74 and is currently tied for 10th with a 153, while teammate Maggie McGill is also tied for 10th with a 153. McGill, who opened with an impressive 75 on Monday, fired a 78 on Tuesday.
Kemmerlee Pennington put together the second-best round of her career with a 77 on Tuesday to move into a tie for 23rd. The junior has a 36-hole total of 163.
Tamara Munsch-Akers shot a disappointing 88 to slip into a tie for 29th. The two-time all-conference selection has a two-day total of 165. Freshman Jenny Kim rounded out the scoring with an 82 to stand in a tie for 37th.
