SORRENTO, Fla. - The Baylor women's golf team is in a three-way tie with Texas A&M and host UCF for second place Monday through two rounds of the UCF Challenge.

Baylor finished the first 36 holes at 22-over (300-298=598), bettering its first round score by two strokes in the second round. BU, Texas A&M and UCF trail Georgia State, which leads the tournament field by seven shots at 15-over (292-299=591). Two Texas A&M golfers are atop the leaderboard through two rounds. Julia Boland shot a 4-under 140 for a one-shot lead, while teammate Sarah Zwartynski is in second place at 3-under 141.

Sophomore Chelsey Cothran posted the Lady Bears' best 36-hole score Monday, finishing tied for 19th place at 5-over (76-73=149). Junior Lene Hafsten-Morch is one shot behind Cothran in 22nd place at 6-over (75-75=150).

"It took everyone contributing today to get the Lady Bears in a position to have a chance at winning this tournament Tuesday," Baylor head women's golf coach Sylvia Ferdon said. "We still had our ups and downs, but I was happy to see us go lower in the second round."

Melanie White, competing as an individual, posted her best 36-hole score as a Lady Bear Monday. White shot 7-over (77-74=151) to finish the day tied for 28th. After a tough first round, Jaclyn Jansen bounced back with an even-par second round to finish tied for 43rd at 10-over (82-72=154). Senior Hannah Burke is one stroke behind Jansen in 49th overall at 11-over (77-78=155).

Freshman Karianne Hillaas, who joined the team at the semester break, shot an even-par 72 in the first round before finishing the day at 13-over (72-85=157).

"Since this is such a competitive field, I am looking forward to seeing us come out firing on all cylinders Tuesday," Ferdon said.

The final round of the UCF Challenge at RedTail will tee off with a 7 a.m. CST shotgun start Tuesday at the RedTail Golf Club. Live scoring will be available at www.GolfStat.com.
