OXFORD, Miss. (April 6, 2013) -- The Baylor women’s golf team finished day two of the Rebel Intercollegiate in third place after shooting a second round 5-over-par 293 on Saturday at the Ole Miss Golf Course. Sophomore Hayley Davis holds the individual lead at 8-under-par heading to the final round.
“The golf course is out there for the taking,” head coach Jay Goble said. “We are going to continue to stay positive with our putting and go out there and try to chip away at the lead tomorrow.”
The Lady Bears (+6, 582) are three shots behind second place Tulane (+3, 579) and trail tournament leader Coastal Carolina (-3, 573) by nine strokes. LSU (+9, 585) and East Tennessee State (+10, 586) are in fourth and fifth place, respectively.
Davis (-8, 136) leads the tournament after following Friday’s tournament-record 5-under-par 67 with a 3-under-par 69 in the second round. Jessica Alexander (-7, 137) of Coastal Carolina is just one stroke behind Davis in second place.
“Hayley played really well again,” Goble said. “From the ninth hole on she was 5-under-par, which is really awesome.”
Laura Lonardi (+3, 147) is tied for 21st place with three other players. Emma Carberry (+8, 151), Lauren Taylor (+8, 151) and Annette Lyche (+8, 151) are all tied for 36th place overall.
Natalia Perez (+5, 149), who is competing as an individual, is tied for 27th place with four other players.
Sunday’s championship round will begin with an 8 a.m. CT shotgun start. Lonardi and Davis will tee off from the first hole, while Taylor and Carberry will begin on No. 2, Lyche will tee off on the third hole and Perez will start from the 18th tee.
