SORRENTO, Fla. -- Alex Aläng posted a career-low, one-under-par 71 amidst windy conditions at the RedTail Golf Course to lead the University of Memphis women's golf team in the second round of the UCF Challenge.
Aläng is in a tie for 24th position with a 36-hole score of 147. Kathleen Glavin followed an opening-round 73 with a three-over-par 75 on the second day of competition to grab a share of 29th position. Julia Hodgson and Sarah Mathews both turned in 80's on day two and are in 69th and 74th place, respectively. Marissa Steen is in a tie for 78th after scores of 77-81.
Memphis turned in a team score of 306 (+18) on the second day and finds itself in 15th position going into the final round. Coastal Carolina (285-289) turned in a one-over-par team total of 289 to move past first-round leader Tulane (284-295).
