Women's Golf Second, Three Shots Out Of First

Fresno, Calif.-Cristina Corpus shot the Spartans best round of the day with a 69 in the second round, and the San Jose State women's golf team shot a one-over 289 to trail UC Davis by three shots at Fresno State Lexus Classic played at Copper River Country Club Monday.

Corpus rebounded from an opening round 74 to shoot a 69 in the second round, her third under par score of the year, and is currently tied for second place and is just two shots behind leader Miki Ueoka from Santa Clara.  Corpus had four birdies in her second round after making two in her first 18 holes. 

Two other Spartans are among the top-10 leaders. Madeleine Ziegert shot her second round of par for the season with a 72 in the first round and added a 73 in round two for a 145 total and tying for sixth place.  Katrina Delen-Briones was consistent with her scores with a 73-73-146 total and is tied for 10th overall.  Both players each had five birdies on the day.

Shraddhanjali Singh is tied for 24th after shooting 77-75-152, while Jody Ho rebounded from a 79 in the first round to a 74 in round two for a 153.  She is tied for 28th 

"These were perfect scoring conditions today," said Spartan head coach John Dormann.  "Weather is going to play a factor in the outcome of the tournament. We had five good scores in the second round, and they played like we have expected all year. We just need to keep our confidence and play another solid round."

Third round action begins at 8:00 a.m. in Fresno, with the Spartans beginning at 9:20 a.m.  Live stats are available at www.golfstat.com with a link on www.sjsuspartans.com under "Live."
