Oxford, Miss. - Tulane's junior tandem of Linn Gustafsson and Janine Fellows each turned in even-par rounds and sophomore Samantha Troyanovich carded a 1-over 73 as the Green Wave combined for a 4-over 292 during the second round and holds an eight stroke lead over East Tennessee State heading into Sunday's final round at the Ole Miss Golf Course.
Gustafsson remains 2-under through two rounds but slipped from first to second overall. Missouri's Julia Potter shot a 4-under 68 today to take over the individual lead and she is currently ahead of Gustafsson by four strokes heading into Saturday. Gustafsson's front nine round was plagued by three bogeys, but she came through with two birdies and was 1-over through nine holes. On the back nine, she scored a pair of birdies and suffered just one bogey for a 1-under round to finish even.
Like her classmate, Fellows also registered an even-par round and remains in a fourth place tie with Ole Miss' Haley Sanders, each at 1-under. Fellows overcame two bogeys with two birdies to remain even on the day.
Troyanovich moved up 12 spots with her 1-over effort and sits in a tie for 21st place. She was even heading to the 18th hole, but had to settle for a bogey that proved to be the difference in her becoming the third TU player with an even-par round on the day.
Freshman Maribel Lopez Porras finished the day with a 3-over 75 and slipped one spot from 12th to 13th place. Sophomore Ashley McKenney was three shots better today than her opening round score, carding a 3-over 75 to match Porras' score, and moved up six spots from 52nd to 46th.
Sunday's round will be a shotgun start beginning at 8:30 a.m. and live scoring is available at www.GolfStat.com.
