BROWNS SUMMITT, N.C. – The 24th-ranked University of Arkansas women’s golf shaved five strokes off their first-round score counting a 305 at the Bryan National Intercollegiate in Browns Summitt, N.C. Saturday. The Razorbacks are eighth overall with a 615. Ninth-ranked LSU leads the field with a 592 after a second-round 302. Arkansas is just 14 strokes out of second trailing No. 13 North Carolina who is second with 602. The top five includes No. 11 Wake Forest in third with 602, No. 3 Virginia in fourth with 604 and No. 50 East Carolina is fifth with 604. Junior Alex Schulte stepped up her game carding a 75 in the second round and is tied for 13th overall with a 152 (77-75). Senior Lucy Nunn is tied for 22nd with 153 (76-77) while freshman Katy Nugent is tied for 39th with a 155 (79-76). Sophomore Kelli Shean is tied for 51st overall with a 157 (80-77) and junior Kristin Ingram is tied for 73rd with 160 (78-82). The Razorbacks battled strong winds for the second day in a row but moved up in the team standings after the second round. “It was a little better today,” said Arkansas head coach Shauna Estes-Taylor. “The wind was tough but we handled it well. Alex was great today and Lucy finished well. I think if we can just ham-and-egg it a little better we will move up the leaderboard. “We have one round left,” Estes-Taylor continued. “We’re going to hit some balls (after Saturday’s round) and get ready for a good finish.” The Razorbacks wrap up play Sunday in the final regular season event of the 2009 season. Arkansas travels to Columbia, S.C., April 17-19, for the SEC Championship. For more information about Arkansas women’s golf, log on to ArkansasRazorbacks.com.
