Bryan, Texas -
The 16th-ranked Virginia women's golf team moved into a tied for second place following the second round of play at Texas A&M's "Mo" Morial Tournament in Bryan, Texas. The Cavaliers shot 8-over 296 Tuesday for a 36-hole total of 18-over 594. Kentucky leads the 12-team field at 10-over 586. The host Aggies are tied with the Cavaliers for second place.
Junior Briana Mao holds down UVa's top spot on the leaderboard, sitting in 10th place at 4-over 148. She had a second round score of 75. A trio of Cavaliers are tied for 15th at 5-over 149. That group includes Lauren Coughlin, Lauren Diaz-Yi and Alex Hershberger.
Hershberger had the best second round of that group, shooting even par 72, but she is competing as a non-scoring individual and her results do not factor into Virginia's team score. Coughlin posted a round of 73 while Diaz-Yi shot 76.
Elizabeth Brightwell is in 24th place at 150 and Portland Rosen is in 32nd position at 153 among UVa's other two scoring players. Both Cavaliers shot 2-over 74 during the second round.
Freshman Evie Dole, an individual competitor, is in 28th place at 152 following a second-round 72. Kaira Martin, also playing as an individual, is in 45th place at 157.
Kentucky's Haley Mills continues to lead the field in stroke play at 2-under 142.
Wednesday's final round will start at 8 a.m. with a shotgun start. Live scoring is online at Golfstat.com.
