Women's Golf Moves Up To Third

Albuquerque, N.M. -- The Alabama Women's Golf team currently sits in third place at the NCAA Championships being held here on the University of New Mexico Championship Course after play was suspended due to high winds that reached up to 50 miles an hour.

"I'm really proud of how our ladies went out and saved strokes today in some very adverse conditions," Alabama Coach Mic Potter said. "We warmed up and then had a two hour delay before we started play. Despite that and the conditions, we still stayed patient and played good golf. The delay could really turn out to be an advantage for us. Hopefully we won't have to fight the wind tomorrow."

The Crimson Tide, which was ninth after the first day, was one over on day two after five holes and 9-over for the championship trailing Southern Cal and UCLA which are tied for first at 8-over.

Junior Kathleen Ekey, who was tied for eighth place when play was suspended, leads the Tide at even par. She was in 23rd place starting the day.

Play at the national championship is scheduled to resume at 7 a.m. MDT Thursday.
