The Eastern Washington University women's golf team sits in a fifth-place tie at the Big Sky Conference Championship with one round to play, as its team score of 623 (318-305) ties the squad with Portland State.
The second through sixth slots are definitely up for grabs, as those five teams are only separated by 12 strokes. Sacramento State is running away with the tournament, leading all teams by 27 shots with a 584. After shooting its second-lowest score in school history on Monday (294), the Hornets set a school record with today's 290.
Chloe Nelson is in eighth place on the leader board after two rounds with a 151 (77-74). She trails three players tied for fifth by just one stroke and is 11 shots behind the leader, Margaux Sheehan of Sacramento State (140, 71-69).
Sheena Prante is just behind Nelson, as she resides in a 12th-place tie with a 153 (78-75). Katie Kofmehl is in 22nd with a 158 (81-77), while Marli Mikulecky has shot a 161 (82-79) and is tied for 25th. Chelsey Lollar is in 29th after shooting a 163 through the first two days (82-81).
Following Sacramento State on the team leader board is Northern Arizona (611, 311-300), Montana (618, 320-298) and Weber State (620, 312-308).
