Despite consistent play, Sewanee drops to second at GolfWeek Fall Invitational

MIRAMAR BEACH, Fla. (Oct. 12, 2015) – Despite three players with better rounds and one Tiger that shot the same score, the Sewanee women's golf team dropped to second place after day two of the GolfWeek Fall Invitational, Monday, at the Baytowne Golf Club.

As a team, Sewanee fired a second-round 310, one shot higher than the Tigers' first-round score of 309. Sewanee's 619 total is one shot behind leader Texas-Tyler, who had the low round of the day at 303. Huntingdon and Washington both sit tied for third with 621 totals.

Overall, seven of the top-20 teams in the nation are in the field.

Individually, senior Emily Javadi leads the Tigers with a 147. After an opening-round 69, Javadi was three-over on the front and back nine holes for a second-round 78. The Chattanooga, Tenn., native dropped to second place behind Tyler's Laura Lindsey who fired a four-under 68, Monday. Lindsey now leads the tournament by five strokes.

Fellow senior Alison Eleey dropped four spots to a tie for 13th despite shooting a 78 for the second straight day. Eleey had four birdies, but ran into some trouble early on the back nine. She carded two birdies on holes 11 and 14 between two double bogeys at No. 10 and No. 13.

Freshmen Sophia Morrill and Meghan Symonds remain in 22nd place after both fired second-round 77s. That was a five shot improvement for both Tiger newcomers.

Finally, freshman Sarah Battye moved up two spots into a t-48th after she also improved by five strokes. Battye's second-round 80 puts her at 165 for the tournament.

The third and final round will begin early Tuesday morning. Sewanee will be paired with both Huntingdon and Texas-Tyler.
