The Spartans were led in the second round by senior Natalia Asensio (76-75) as she carded a three-over 75. The senior birdied twice on the front-nine and once on the back-nine during the round.
“I got off to a good start today,” Asensio said. “It got a little rocky in the middle, but I am proud of how I fought back. I’m excited to see what the team can do tomorrow to wrap up our home tournament.”
Along with Asensio, sophomore Tara Bettle (74-77) is tied for 44th place after she completed Saturday’s action at five-over 77. Bettle birdied Holes 4 and 6.

“Today, I played great all day,” Kershaw said. “I had a couple big numbers, but just had some bad luck on those. I couldn’t have hit the ball better and putting was solid all day. My game is getting better every day and I’m excited to see how I can finish up tomorrow.”
