TUCSON - Day two of the Las Vegas Collegiate Showdown proved more successful for the No. 11 University of Arizona Wildcat women's golf team. The Wildcats jumped to second place in the team standings, shooting a 12-under 276 in Tuesday's second round. The three-round event is being played at the Boulder Creek Golf Course (par 72/6,329 yards).
"The conditions were perfect today and that allowed for some pretty low scoring," assistant coach Justin Silverstein said. "Coach Ianello and I are thrilled with how Kyndall Ardoin bounced back in the second round. She showed us a lot of impressive stuff today. We still have quite a deficit to make up but all we can do at this point is put our heads down and try to shoot the lowest score possible."
No. 19 Arkansas still leads the team standings with rounds of 277 and 276 for a total of 553. The Wildcats carded rounds of 295 and 276 for a total of 571 and second place. No. 26 Kent State rounds out the top three with rounds of 296 and 277 for a total of 573.
No. 54 junior Isabelle Boineau led the Wildcats in the individual race. With her second-round score of 69 (-3), she moved from tied for 11th to tied for seventh. No. 40 junior Margarita Ramos also moved up in the standings. Her day-two score of 69 (-3) moved her from tied for 14th to 13th. Junior Nikki Koller also made a jump. Sitting at 23rd and up from 24th, she carded a 71 (-1).
Easily the biggest jump of the day was made by Wildcat sophomore Kyndall Ardoin. After struggling in Monday's first round, she carded a 67 (-5) to move from tied for 74th to tied for 24th. No. 41 senior Alejandra Llaneza was Arizona's fifth golfer, moving to a tie for 32nd after carding a 71 (-1).
