BROWNS SUMMITT, N.C. – University of Arkansas senior Stacy Lewis fired a three-under par 69 moving into the lead after the second round of the Bryan National in Browns Summitt, N.C.

Arkansas improved as a team carding a 302 moving up to a tie for fifth overall with a two-day 607 (305-302). Lewis finished the front nine at two-under with birdies on one, four and six and a bogey on the par four seventh. She played the back nine even until her fourth birdied on the 15th hole dropping her to three-under on the day.

“It was a hard day again,” said Arkansas head coach Shauna Estes-Taylor. “It was freezing cold. It was tough out there but what a great round again by Stacy. Our goal is to go out there Sunday and finish strong. If we can do that we’ll move up the leader board.”
