TCU Golfers Move Into Third After 36 Holes of Lady Paladin
Oct. 25, 2003
GREENVILLE, S.C. - The TCU Horned Frogs recorded the second-best score on Saturday, a three-over 291, to move into third place following two rounds of the Furman Lady Paladin Invitational. TCU (596) began the day tied for fourth and now are positioned behind only 11th-rated Georgia (574) and No. 18 Tulsa (589).
Brooke Tull, who claimed medalist honors at the 2002 Lady Paladin, continued her quest to repeat as the tournament's champion. The senior led a trio of Frogs who posted under-par scores, as she tallied a two-under 70. Tull currently is in sole possession of second place at the tourney, just two strokes behind Georgia's Whitney Wade. Tull already has a tournament title and a runner-up finish to her credit this fall.
Joining Tull at under-par was freshman Catherine Matranga, who moved up from a share of 22nd place into a tie for seventh after a one-under 71. Matranga sports a three-over total of 147 heading into the final round. The best finish of her young career is a tie for 27th at the Shootout at the Legends.
Junior D'Rae Ward made the largest jump of the day, as she rebounded from an 80 on Friday to log a 71 (-1) on Saturday. Ward now resides in a share of 18th place, 30 spots better than she began the day. She is looking for her second top-20 finish of the fall season.
Freshman Camille Blackerby carded a 79 (+7) in the second round and is tied for 37th place individually at 156. Sophomore Traci Robison has a share of 49th with a 36-hole score of 159. She improved on yesterday's round of 80 by one stroke.
TCU will tee off beginning at 9:00 a.m. (ET) in Sunday's third and final round. The Horned Frogs will be paired with Georgia and Tulsa. This marks the final fall event of the season for the Horned Frogs.
