ROSWELL, Ga. – University of Arkansas rising senior Summar Roachell is in the lead after two rounds at the Judson Collegiate 2016 in Roswell, Georgia, on Wednesday.
The event features 72 collegiate players from all over the country with a pro-am and three rounds of stroke play at the Country Club of Roswell.
Roachell is 1-under for the tournament and leads the field by a stroke with one day remaining.
The Conway, Arkansas, native, caddied for former Razorback Regina Plasenica in her Monday qualifier at the Walmart NW Arkansas Championship presented by P&G last week. She traveled to Georgia over the weekend to begin preparations for this event.
Round two of the Judson Collegiate 2016 featured five birdies and two bogeys as Roachell posted a 34-35 — 69, on the par-71 course. She finished strong with an eagle on No. 16 and a birdie on No. 17 to close out the round. She is in the clubhouse with a 72-69 — 141.
The Southeastern Conference is well-represented in the event with players from Auburn, Alabama, Georgia, Mississippi State, South Carolina and Tennessee in the field.
The event is by invitation-only with the previous year’s top-30 getting the first entries to the tournament. The Judson Collegiate works in connection with the JCI Foundation, established in memory of Jim and Beth Judson. The foundation’s mission is “Helping young women achieve greatness in their lives through thought leadership, positive mentorship, and education, enabling them to build a lifetime of fulfillment.”
