Jump toresults ROGERS, Ark.– University of Arkansas senior Courtney Mahon and sophomore Ashley Medders put together back-to-back good rounds leading the Lady Razorbacks into first place in second round action at the Tyson/Embassy Suites Invitational at Pinnacle Country Club in Rogers, Ark., Monday. Mahon, in her fourth year with head coach Kelley Hester and the Lady’Backs, fired back-to-back 71s, for a 142 and a tie for the tournament lead with the final round still to come. The Topeka, Kan., native shares the top spot with Kansas’ Amanda Costner who carded a 70-72. Mahon’s round was steady opening with six pars before going one-under with a birdie on the seventh hole. She would finish the first nine that way and fall to two under with her second bogey on hole 12. She picked up a stroke on the 13th hole, moved to even on the 14th and got back to one-under on the 16th to finish the day. Medders, competing as an individual for the second-ranked Lady’Backs, is third with a 143 (72-71) carding her career-best round as a Lady’Back Monday. The Alma, Georgia, native played in just three events for Arkansas as a freshman but is stepping up for the Lady’Backs this week.
