PALO ALTO, Calif. ?- The Arizona women’s golf team broke 300 for the second day in a row shooting a +15 (299).  With two rounds complete the Wildcats sit in a tie for 10th place at the Stanford-Pepsi Women’s Intercollegiate. 


“It seems like every round we play there is always one person to step up for us,” head coach Greg Allen said.  “The problem is that we need all of our players to step up for the same round.” 


Stepping up for the Wildcats in round two was freshman Sommer Scholl.  After shooting a +18 (89) in round one, Scholl came out in round two and shot an E (71), her career low as a Wildcat.


“I didn’t even think Sommer was going to be able to play today due to the tendentious in her elbow and wrist,” Allen said.  “To see her fight through the pain and put up the numbers that she did today really shows me that she’s a great competitor.”


Senior Cassandra Kirkland and freshman Lauren Espinosa find themselves tied for 35th place after round two.  Kirkland shot a +5 (76) in round two and Espinosa shot a +7 (77) giving them each a 149 after two rounds.    


Amanda Wilson shot a +4 (75) today and is tied for 47th with a 151.  Senior Lani Elston-Marshall is tied for 68th place.  Elston shot a +7 (78) in round two and has a 155 heading into round three. 


The Cats tee off tomorrow at 7:30 a.m. for the third and final round of the Stanford-Pepsi Women’s Intercollegiate.
