NEW ORLEANS –Despite a second day of inclement weather, the 19th-ranked Baylor women’s golf team remained in fourth place Monday after the second round of the Allstate Sugar Bowl Intercollegiate.
Baylor bettered its first-round score by three strokes with a second-round 294, finishing at 15-over 591 through 36 holes, one stroke behind third-place Colorado and two strokes ahead of fifth-place Florida. No. 4 USC leads the field by four strokes at 9-over 585; No. 13 Duke is second at 13-over 589.
“I honestly think we played better Monday even with the worsened conditions,” first-year head coach Jay Goble. “We had more rain, it was windier, but we finished better.”
Senior Chelsey Cothran, rated 40th nationally by Golfstat, fired a 71 and is tied with USC’s Doris Chen for third overall at 1-under 143. Cothran is six strokes behind second-round leader, Oregon’s Cassy Isagawa, who carded a course-record 65 on Monday.
Eyeing her sixth consecutive top-10 finish to start her career, freshman Hayley Davis is tied for 10th at 3-over 147. After a first-round 72, Davis, rated 24th nationally, shot a second-round 75 and is four strokes behind Cothran.
Senior Valerie Sternebeck is tied for 30th at 6-over 150, while senior Jaclyn Jansen is tied for 36th at 7-over 151. Jansen (1-under) and Cothran (2-under) were the only Baylor golfers to shoot under-par on the back nine Monday. Individual Kaylin Terry is tied for 60th at 14-over 158, followed by freshman Emma Carberry at 17-over 161, which is tied for 71st overall.
