Jess Meek recorded a 2-underpar score in the second round to lead the Tigers.
Feb. 17, 2014
"We had a much better day on the course today," head coach Stephanie Priesmeyer said. "Jess (Meek) finished strong with three birdies on her last four holes, and Taylor and Michelle had so many opportunities for birdies that just missed. It will be quite a challenge to move up the leaderboard with the start we had yesterday, but we are focused on improving each day and getting better; 18 shots better than yesterday is a great start. I'm proud of their turnaround today."
Arkansas maintained the lead in the tournament as the Razorbacks sit 5-under par after two rounds. GRU Augusta pulled into second place after a second round 1-under par score, and Northwestern completes the top three, with a two-round tally 15-over par.
Not only did Meek have a great showing in the second round, teammate Taylor Gohn came out with a second round total just 2-over par. Gohn tallied two birdies on the day to recover from two bogeys early on. Redshirt freshman Michelle Butler finished just 3-over par in the second round for a two-day tally 8-over par. She's tied with Gohn for 41st in the tournament.
Sophomore Katherine Hepler finished 6-over par in the second round, improving on her first round score by three strokes. Junior Alina Rogers also improved in the second round, knocking five strokes off of her first round score. She finished with a second round score 10-over par.
