DAYTONA BEACH, FLA. - It was not the best of days for the John A. Logan College women's golf team Tuesday. The Volunteers turned in a team score of 354, or eight strokes higher than Monday's round of 18 and fell from seventh place overall to eighth.
Top performer Tuesday for the Vols was sophomore Dana Kaufmann of Carterville with an 85. She is now tied for 31st overall out of 100 participants. Sophomore Brittanie Garrison of Carmi followed with an 87 and is tied for 29th overall.
Sophomore Abby Miller of Anna-Jonesboro shot a second consecutive round of 88 and ranks 44th overall. Sophomore Mollie Borowiak of Nashville was one stroke better than Monday with a 94 and is tied for 63rd place. Freshman Kirsten Faulkner was five strokes better than Monday with a 95 and is 75th overall.
Logan now sits 16 strokes back of seventh-place Tyler, Texas (684 to 700). Host Daytona State has a commanding 20-stroke lead over the nearest challenger with a two-day total of 588.
"Course conditions were a little tougher today and will continue to get tougher each day," said Logan head coach Bill Glenn, "We'll try to regroup Wednesday and try to move up the standings. It's still doable."
Rend Lake's Ashley Sexton is tied for 31st place at 168. Madison Burgett is 43rd at 174 and Katie Garver is tied for 46th at 179.
