JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – As round two of the 2010 JMU-Eagle Landing Invitational came to a close on Monday afternoon, the FGCU women’s golf is sitting in sole possession of the fourth place on the team leaderboard.

Beating out Stetson (609), Kennesaw State (611), Chattanooga (611), Elon (613), East Carolina (614) and Kansas State (619) to finish out the top 10, the five-participant FGCU squad submitted a combined 607 (305-302), good for fourth place overall. The Eagles were in a two-way tie for fourth place with Stetson after the opening round of play but now sit two strokes ahead of the Hatters, and four strokes ahead of Kennesaw State and Chattanooga, heading into Tuesday’s final round. Central Arkansas is still atop the leaderboard with a 596, South Florida is currently second with a 599, while Illinois is the only other school to beat out the Eagles with a 602.
