FRENCH LICK, Ind. - Junior Rosie Davies birdied her last two holes and senior Kristtini Cain and junior Pamela Burneski posted team-best rounds of 77 on day two of the Big Ten Women's Golf Championships being held on the Donald Ross Course at the French Lick Resort in French Lick, Indiana.
Indiana posted a second-round score of 311, 23 strokes better than its effort on Friday, and is 12th with a score of 645. Michigan State leads the field at 590, followed by Ohio State (595), Michigan (599), Illinois (604) and Purdue (604).
"Some positives we can take away are just keep to our game plan and give ourselves multiple opportunities to make birdies," said head coach Clint Wallman.
Freshman Elizabeth Tong continues to pace the Hoosiers, posting a 7-over 79 on Saturday to sit tied for 47th at 160. While posting no birdies, Tong limited her mistakes with just one double bogey to go with 12 holes of par.
