ATHENS, Ga. – University of Arkansas senior Victoria Vela carded a one-under 71 leading the fifth-ranked Razorbacks to a 293 in second round action at the 2013 NCAA Women’s Golf Championship in Athens, Ga., Wednesday.

As a team, the Razorbacks carded a 293 for the day but their final position had to wait through a more than two-hour delay as weather chased the afternoon flight of teams off the course.

Play resumed but more lightening moved into the area and three teams did not complete their rounds.  Two of the teams, San Jose State and Northwestern, have two holes remaining and their finish could affect the second round standings for Arkansas.

The Razorbacks are tied for 12th overall with Northwestern who could still move up or down but must know complete the round in the morning.

“The score was a little better but we still haven’t fired yet as a team,” Arkansas head coach Shauna Estes-Taylor said.  “Victoria’s round was just amazing today.  She birdied 16 and 17 to get to one-under and just shows you her senior smarts, her leadership and her willingness to put everything into each golf shot.  Emily (Tubert) also finished well today and I think we have some good things to build on.”

The Razorbacks played the final three holes one under and had five birdies in that stretch.

Vela, a Mansfield, Texas, native, opened on the first tee and was one of three Razorbacks to bogey the opening hole. She regrouped and pared the next nine holes turning one over through 10.  Vela moved to two-over with her second bogey of the day on the 11th hole but again settled in with back-to-back pars on the 12th and 13th holes.

The senior then stepped up with three birdies in the final five holes moving to one-under.  She counted a three on the par four 14th hole and was in in two shots on the par three 16th.  She counted four on the par five 17th hole and saved a nice par putt on the final hole of the day.

Vela opened tournament play with a first round 74 and is in the clubhouse with a 145.  

Freshman Regina Plasencia also played well finishing with a one-over 73.  Plasencia bogeyed her third hole.  It was the only blemish on an otherwise perfect scorecard for the Guadalajara, Mexico, native.

Plasencia opened with a 77 in the first round and has a two-day 150.  

Junior Emily Tubert rallied from a slow start yesterday and also carded a one-over 73 in the second round.  Tubert turned three overall and moved to plus four with a bogey on 11, but she closed strong with birdies on the 12th, 14th and 18th holes.

Tubert has rounds of 75-73 for a 148.

Junior Emma Lavy, a Fayetteville, Ark., native, checked in with a six-over 78 in the second round.  Lavy lead the team in the first round with a 73 and is in the clubhouse with a 151 after the second round.
