DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – The Florida Gulf Coast University women’s golf team maintained its 12th-place ranking after the second of three rounds at the LPGA Xavier Invitational.  The Eagles carded a team score of 327 during the second round of 18-holes and hold an overall total of 648.  The Green and Blue sit 52 strokes behind tournament leader, Morehead State.

“Today was another battle on the course,” explained head coach Sarah Trew of the Eagles’ struggles.  “We are still making big numbers and making mental mistakes.  Tomorrow we need to find a way to dig deep and finish well.  We are plenty capable of better scores on this course, it’s just believing that we can.”

Senior Briana Carlson (Inverness, Fla./Citrus High School) again led the Eagles through Sunday’s round.  Carlson matched her score of 77 from Saturday’s round and currently holds an overall score of 154.  The senior ranks 25th among the field’s 100 players.

Chelsea Guoynes (Traverse City, Mich./Traverse City Central High School) moved ahead in the overall rankings with a score of 84 on Saturday.  The mark combined with her Saturday score of 80 gives the junior a total 164 and a ranking of 61.

Junior Georgia Price (Bude, England/Fort Myers High School) dropped in the field with a score of 86 during the second of 18 holes but holds onto third among the Eagles lineup with a total 165, while Emma Smyser (Naples, Fla./Gulf Coast High School) sit just behind her with a 166.  Smyser carded an 80 in the first round before cutting six strokes off her round and recording an 80 in Sunday’s action.

Mei Khuan Yong (Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia/S.M.K. Cochrane) rounded out the Eagles’ lineup with an 87 on day two and a 172 overall.

The LPGA Xavier Invitational will conclude on Monday with a final round of 18 holes.  Results can be found at FGCUAthletics.com and at GolfStat.com.
