AU Women Remain In Third, Green Five Shots Back

There wasn't much room to maneuver on Day 2 of the 2016 Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference Championship for Ashland University's women's golf team.

On Saturday (April 23) in Allendale, Mich., the Eagles remained entrenched in third place in the standings, following a first-day team score of 310 with a second-round 315. Host Grand Valley State continues to lead the field at 292-295—587, while Findlay remains second (303-311—614).

Senior Ali Green remains in contention for an individual conference title after a second-day round of 75. Her two-day total of 148 is five shots off the lead. Green is looking for her fourth top-10 finish in the GLIAC Championship.

Junior Kaitlin Neumann moved up to a tie for sixth individually on Saturday, firing a 4-over 76 for a two-day total of 151. In her two previous GLIAC Championships, Neumann finished tied for eighth (2014) and tied for seventh (2015).

Also on the course for Ashland were junior Emily Jereb (80-83—163), freshman Monica Torda (82-81—163) and freshman Morgan Eib (88-87—175).

The Eagles and the rest of the 12-team conference field will finish the GLIAC Championship with the third round on Sunday (April 24).
