COLLEGE STATION, Texas — Texas A&M women’s golfer Jennie Park stood in sole possession of first place after posting a 6-under 66 in round two and has the Aggies in fifth place at the NCAA Franklin Regional at the Vanderbilt Legends Club.

Park (69-66—135) continued her excellent play, knocking down seven birdies and locking in a score of 9-under 135 after 36 holes. The junior torched the back nine with a 31, including three-straight birdies on Nos. 16, 17 and 18 to finish the round. She leads the field by three strokes over Alabama’s Polly Mack.

The Maroon & White (289-295—584) shot 7-over 295 in round two. The Aggies dropped a spot from round one and trail fourth-place Wake Forest by five strokes with a team score of 8-over 584. In order to advance to the NCAA Championship, Texas A&M will need to find its way back into the top four by the end of the final round on Wednesday.

“Jennie [Park] finished great and is keeping us in it,” head coach Gerrod Chadwell said. “Collectively, we need to be better and have a bit more discipline on some areas of the course. Jennie has been awesome, and we need to help her. Tomorrow is a new day, and a lot can happen in team golf.”

Senior Hailee Cooper (74-75—149) and sophomore Zoe Slaughter (73-76—149) both hold a share of 30th heading into the final round. Freshman Adela Cernousek (73-78—151) and Blanca Fernández García-Poggio (74-79—153) tied for 42nd and 49th, respectively.
