Texas Tech and San Jose State shared the lead midway through the day after shooting 1-over 289. Baylor improved to a 6-over 294 in the second round, which put the Lady Bears in fourth place at 15-over heading into Tuesday’s final round.

Davis, a sophomore All-American, led the way with an ever par 72 in Monday’s first round, followed by Carberry’s 2-over 74, Kaylin Terry’s 3-over 75 and Lauren Taylor’s 4-over 76. Annette Lyche, who joined Taylor in making their collegiate debuts, shot a 7-over 79.
