CRYSTAL RIVER, Fla. ----- The UAB women’s golf fell to 12th place after the second round of the University of Cincinnati Spring Invitational in Crystal River, Fla. Rouillard fired the low round for the Blazers for the second straight day with a four-over par 76.
Rouillard, who shot an even-par 72 in yesterday’s opening round, continued her strong weekend with a four-over par 76 this afternoon. Rouillard is currently in fifth place for the event, five shots back of the tournament leader.
“Jessica is playing really well. She finished today with a double bogey on her last hole but if she can just stay focused tomorrow, she’ll have a good finish,” said UAB head coach Kim Wilcox.
As a team, the Blazers fired a 321 for a two-day total of 632. UAB is in 12th place for the tournament.
“The conditions were tougher today than they were yesterday. There was some rain north of us that caused the wind to pick up on our back nine and we struggled to adjust to the wind. When the wind is blowing and you don’t hit your shot straight, then the wind will exaggerate the mistake,” added Wilcox.
Florida Southern’s Megan Kiley leads the individual standings at one-under par after a round of one-over par 73 earlier today. Amy Anderson, North Dakota State, and Chanya Angwarawong, Seminole State-Florida, are currently in second and third place at one-over par and two-over par, respectively.
The University of Cincinnati leads the team competition with a two-day total of 604. They are followed closely by Bradley University at 605. Florida Southern sits in the third position at 613.
The final round will begin Sunday morning with a shotgun start at 8:30 a.m. ET.
