Oct. 17, 2011
CARMEL, Ind. - The Indiana women's golf team sits tied for seventh after 36 holes of the Hoosier Fall Invitational being held at Crooked Stick Golf Club in Carmel, Ind.
The 54-hole tournament concludes with an 8:30 a.m. ET shotgun start on Tuesday.
Notre Dame leads the field with a score of 603 (306-297). Illinois is second (314-293/607), followed by Eastern Michigan (303-306/609), Nebraska (311-302/613) and Wichita State (307-311/613). The Hoosiers tallied a 317 in the first round, improving to a 307 in round two.
"We were able to hold our own after a rough start," said head coach Clint Wallman. "We put ourselves in a tough position. We would ultimately like to finish better but I feel good about where we are coming back for tomorrow's final round."
Senior Kristtini Cain is tied for 13th with a 79 round one and a 2-over 74 in round two. Cain tallied birdies on seven and 10, while hitting par on 12 of the remaining 16 holes for her second-round effort.
Junior Kate Coons is two strokes back at 155, posting a 79 in round one and a 76 in round two. Coons had three birdies in round two, tackling the sixth, 15th and 16th holes with ease.
Coming off a top-10 finish at last week's Lady Northern Invitational, freshman Elizabeth Tong is tied for 25 with a score of 156 (78-78). Tong was steady through both rounds and was cruising through the first 18 before a triple bogey on nine tripped her up. Undeterred she would hit par on seven of the remaining nine holes in the round.
Competing as an individual, sophomore Sophie Hayashi is tied for 50th at 161. After double bogeys on six and nine in round one led to a score of 82, Hayashi cleaned up her game with no doubles in round two and 11 holes of par.
