Western Carolina leads the way at 613, followed by host North Florida at 618.
Sophomore Jessica Cathey (84-82) and freshman Morgan Kauffmann (81-85) led the way with 166s, followed by senior Tala Mumford (80-88) at 168. Senior Rachel Deaton came in at 171 (82-89) while junior Meghan Mueller shot a 174 (88-86).
Playing as an individual freshman Morgan Gardner 174 (89-85). Two other freshmen, Amber Bosworth (89-88=177) and Kelsey Schutt (88-96=184), also played as individuals.
“We had a pretty rough first day,” APSU coach Sara Robson said. “After the weather we had this spring and the little course time we’ve had it is understandable to a point. We really struggled with our short game and we just had too many high numbers.
“It is a hard course and we started the second round playing a lot better, but we just could not maintain it.”
The Lady Govs will attempt to improve their standing Tuesday in the tourney’s final 18 holes.
