The Ohio women’s golf team fell into a tie for 11th place overall at the Nittany Lion Invitational after shooting a 309 in the second round on Saturday.

The Bobcats’ second round score was only four strokes worse than their total from the opening round played the day before, but was still enough to allow them to slide down from 7th overall into a tie with fellow Mid-American Conference school, Western Michigan.

Senior Kara Brinkmann, who had the highest score out of all of her teammates after the first round, shot a team-low +4 on Saturday. Brinkmann recorded two birdies, and never shot more than one over par on any hole during her second round.

Senior Kristen Helmsdoerfer and freshman Hailey Hrynewich both were +5 in their second round. Hrynewich, who was even at par coming into the day, earned only one birdie and her first double bogey of the competition, but still holds the team’s best overall score through two days. Hrynewich is currently sits in a tie for 14th overall on the individual leaderboard.

Sophomores Angela Codian and Lauren McKinzie scored +11 and +12, respectively. It was the first time all year either player reached a double-digit score over par in one round.

MAC opponent Kent State leapfrogged Yale into the lead position, after shooting a tournament-best 288 on Saturday.

The Bobcats will play in the third and final round of the Nittany Lion Invitational on Sunday.
