Oct. 28, 2013
SAN ANTONIO, Texas. (SMU) - Freshman Katie Page turned in a season-best even-par 72 to lead the No. 43 SMU women's golf team to a three-over 291 in the second round of The Alamo Invitational on Monday at Briggs Ranch Golf Course. SMU enters Tuesday's final round in eighth at two-over par through 36 holes.
"Katie had her lowest round as a Mustang after playing quite well out there today. She stayed in the round all day and played steady and consistent golf," head coach Jeanne Sutherland said. "Overall, I really like to see the balance that we showed out there as a team today. We didn't necessarily make a run up the leaderboard because we didn't have that one player go really low, but we played very consistently as a team today."
Page recorded two birdies on the front nine, and didn't bogey a hole until the par-four 16th on Monday, her fifth collegiate round. The Mustang freshman is in 43rd heading into Tuesday's final round.
Sophomore Jenny Haglund battled her way through an injury on Monday, but finished her round with a pair of birdies on the back nine to close out the tournament's middle round with a one-over 73. Haglund, who is now at two-under for the tournament, is in 14th through 36 holes.
Senior Maria Elena Villamil and sophomore Alexandra Rossi matched Haglund's one-over 73 on Monday afternoon. Villamil is even through two rounds in San Antonio, and will enter tomorrow's round in 20th. Rossi is at three-over and in 39th after Monday's action. Freshman Lindsey McCurdy is in 43rd after her three-over 75 on Monday (four-over for the tournament).
Arkansas holds a two-stroke lead at 14-under through two rounds. LSU's Lindsay Gahm is atop the individual leaderboard after her second-consecutive four-under 68.
