ARLINGTON – A day after approaching the school record, the Texas A&M University-Commerce women’s golf team cleared that hurdle, shooting a 5-under par 283 in the second round of the Lone Star Conference Women’s Golf Championships at Texas Rangers Golf Club. 

The Lions’ 283 was the lowest round of the day by two strokes and narrows the gap on tournament leaders DBU. A&M-Commerce’s 36-hole subtotal of 569 (286-283) is 7-under par, and DBU is at 19-under par 557. The Lions have a nine-stroke lead on third place St. Mary’s. 

Sophie-Charlott Hempel (Pirmasens, Germany) and Sarah Wongsinth (Udon Thani, Thailand) tied for second place on the individual leaderboard at 6-under par 138. The duo matched each other’s rounds in the first two days with a 68 on Monday and a 70 on Tuesday. Wongsinth had five birdies on Tuesday, including four in a row, and Hempel had four birdies, including three of the last four holes. 

Inma Ortiz Prieto (Huelva, Spain) matched that pair with a 70 of her own on Tuesday, equaling her first-round score. The LSC Newcomer of the Year had four birdies on the day and is in fifth place at 4-under par 140. 

Michelle Becker (San Antonio – Reagan) had a 3-over par 73 on Tuesday, carding four birdies, and is in 35th place at 9-over par 153. Karlee Nichols (Smithson Valley) had a birdie on Tuesday on the way to a 79 and is in 56th place at 162.
