Minnesota will head into the third and final round of the BYU Entrada Classic with an opportunity for a team title for the first time since the 2007-08 season. The Gophers are currently in second place through two rounds at Entrada at Snow Canyon with a score of 600 (304-296) and are 11 strokes shy of the team leader Wisconsin Badgers.
The Gophers’ second round score of 296 is just the fifth sub-300 round of the season and helped the squad move from fourth after the morning session. Senior Jackie Shepherd is the main reason for the movement in the second round. She carded a season-low one-under par 71 – one of just six under par rounds on the day – and is in tie for third place.
Sophomore Anna Laorr continued her consistent play this season with rounds of 75 and 74 and is in a tie for sixth place. She will head into the final round in search of her first top-1o finish as a collegian. Junior Banchalee Theinthong is in a tie for ninth place, one shot behind Laorr and three behind Shepherd after a pair of 75’s on the day.
Redshirt sophomore Taylor Quinn, playing the tournament as an individual, shot rounds of 77 and 76 and is in a tie for 16th place. Sophomore Sarinee Thitiratanakorn is in a tie for 32nd place after rounds of 80 and 76 while fellow sophomore Carmen Laguna carded rounds of 78 and 82 and is in a tie for 47th place.
The host BYU Cougars are in third place with a 54-hole score of 607, one shot ahead of Cal State Fullerton. Nevada is in fifth with a team score of 612. Wisconsin’s Kimberly Dinh is the individual leader with a two-round score of 142 (72-70).
The third and final round is scheduled to begin at 9:30 a.m. and can be followed live at www.golfstat.com.
