Tide Women's Golf Remains In First

RIO GRANDE, Puerto Rico – After a challenging second day on the course, the No. 1 Alabama's women golf team remains in first place on Monday after two rounds of the Lady Puerto Rico Classic with a nine-stroke lead.



Alabama shot 10-over-par round of 298 on Monday and is 8-over-par 584 for the tournament.

Freshman Stephanie Meadow, who is currently tied for first individually, climbed up the leader board after entering the day in seventh place. Meadow carded a 2-under-par round of 70. She had three birdies and one bogey on the day. Alongside Meadow, also tied for first, is Texas Tech's Gabriella Dominguez.

Following closely behind in sixth place is senior Camilla Lennarth, who shot a 4-over 76 in round two. After a tough front nine, Lennarth bounced back with birdies on holes 11 and 13 en route to a 1-under-par 35 on the back nine.

Junior Brooke Pancake fell a few spots down the leader board on Monday with a 4-over 76. A solid back nine of even par kept Pancake in contention after a disappointing front side that leaves her tied for ninth heading into the final round.

Sophomore Jennifer Kirby is tied for 13th place after a 6-over-par 78 in round two, while senior Courtney Harter improved six shots from her opening round score with a 4-over-par 76.

Iowa State (+17, 593) sits in second place, nine strokes off the Crimson Tide lead. Florida State is in third place (+22, 598), 14 strokes off the lead, with Purdue (+26, 602) in fourth place.

After the Crimson Tide, the next SEC school is Georgia (+34,610) in fifth place and Auburn (+47, 623) is in 14th place.

Alabama is paired with Iowa State, Florida State and Purdue in the final round of the Lady Puerto Rico Classic Tuesday. Tee times will begin at 5:30 a.m. central time.
