Junior Kristin Ingram shot up the standings and is tied for sixth overall with back-to-back rounds of 70 for a two-under 140 on the par 71, 6,092-yard Stanford Golf Course. “Kristin played so well again today,” said Arkansas head coach Shuana Estes-Taylor. “It’s been really fun to watch her play this weekend. “We struggled a bit as a team today,” Estes-Taylor continued, “especially on the greens. We’re going to clean that up tomorrow and try and move up in the standings.” The Razorbacks counted a 299 Saturday and slipped in the standings to 10th in the 16-team field with a 581 (282-299).
