Spartans Second Round Finally Over At NCAA Championships

Wilmington, N.C.-A round that saw two weather delays ended almost seven hours after it started did not help the San Jose State women's golf team Wednesday.  The Spartans shot a 301 at the second round of the NCAA Division I Women's Golf Championships at the Country Club of Landfall Pete Dye Course.

The Spartans started the second round with Jody Ho teeing off at 12:20 p.m.  The team got through holes three through six before the first weather delay happened at 1:49 p.m. when lightning was spotted in the area.  A 58-minute delay ensued, and play resumed at 2:47 p.m.

But that was not the end of the delays.  Then, 41 minutes later, another delay was called at 3:28 p.m. that lasted 49 minutes and resumed at 4:17 p.m. with the Spartans on holes six through nine.

Singh again led the Spartans with a 75.  She made birdies on the third, fourth and 16th holes. 

Cristina Corpus and Jody Ho each shot a 78.  Corpus had just one birdie on the day, the par-4 10th, while Ho made birdies on the par-4 5th and par-3 13th, the only birdies the team made on those holes all day.

Madeleine Ziegert shot a 79, while Katrina Delen-Briones added an 81.

"It was a very long day," said San Jose State head coach John Dormann.  "We did play very well today.  Luckily, we still have two more rounds to go at the championships."

Weather also delayed the end of the second round.  Players were called off the course at 7:27 p.m. local time when a torrential downpour hit the area.  Nine groups will resume second round play Thursday morning at 7:30 a.m., with third round action starting at the conclusion of the second round, approximately 10 a.m. EDT./7 a.m. PDT.
