PALOS VERDES, Calif. ?- The Arizona women’s golf team remains tied for 11th place after round two despite shooting six shots better than in round one.  After two rounds at the Northrop Grumman Challenge, the Wildcats are tied with Pepperdine for 11th place with a +50, 618.

 

“We knew coming in that this was going to be a tough tournament for us,” head coach Greg Allen said.  “This is a very challenging course to play on and nothing like the courses that we are used to.”

 

Freshman Lauren Espinosa shot a +4, 75 in round two, shaving four strokes off her round one performance and currently leading the Wildcats.  Espinosa climbed the leader board as well and is now tied for 31st place.

 

Joining Espinosa in 31st place is fellow freshman Amanda Wilson who shot a +7, 78 today. 

 

After shaving five strokes off her round one score, freshman Adriana Zwanck finds herself tied with Senior Whitney Welch at 39th place.  In round two Zwanck shot a +4, 75 while Welch shot a +7, 78. 

 

“We definitely got better today,” Allen said.  “As long as we can continue to make steady improvements tomorrow, we will be in good shape.”

 

Rounding out the Wildcat squad is Sommer Scholl with a +12, 83. 

 

USC finished the day +23, 591 which is one stroke better than second place ASU.  Oklahoma State, California and Wake Forest round out the top five teams after two rounds. 

 

“We are only seven strokes off 6th place,” Allen said.  “If we come out tomorrow and eliminate some of our mistakes, I think we have a realistic shot at nearing the top five.”

 

The Wildcats tee off for the final round in California tomorrow at 10 a.m. PST.
