College of the Ozarks Lady Bobcats, playing in the NCCAA Women’s Golf National Championship in Palm Coast, Fla., slipped slightly on Tuesday but still retained their position in sixth place.

 

Following the completion of two rounds of play, the Lady Cats team score stands at 724 (361/363), placing them 13 strokes behind  5th place Bethel College (Ind.) at 711.

Tuesday’s Lady Cat leader on the course was sophomore Hannah Aherin, who shot an 83 to move her into a tie for 21st place with teammate Bianca Cunningham.  Bianca, a freshman who carded a team-leading 85 on Monday, followed up with an 89 in Round 2.  Junior Kate Voss improved her score by two strokes on Tuesday and currently stands in a tie for 33rd place.  For more detailed scoring, click here.

The players will head back to Hammock Beach’s Ocean Course on Wednesday morning for the third and final round of the Championship.  The Lady Bobcats will look to make some positive steps forward, as Central Christian (Kan.) with a with a two-day total of 729 is right on C of O’s heels.

 

Best wishes to our Lady Bobcats in their final day of play.
