She currently co-leads the tournament in par-4 scoring at even-par and total pars with 28.

Senior Jessica Alexander (72-78=150) is tied for sixth in the 45-competitor field after posting a 6-over 78. Alexander carded a birdie on the round, but was hindered by a pair of double-bogeys. Frida Castillo (76-75=151) jumped two spots up the leaderboard and is currently tied for eighth. Castillo shot a 3-over 75 on the day. She was 4-over through her front nine, but used birdies on 12, 13 and 15 to play the back nine 1-under.

Marissa Hinchman, a freshman, shot a 3-over 77 on the day and is tied for 12th with a 9-over 153 (76-77) 36-hole score. Hinchman carded two birdies and 11 pars on the round, but was hampered by four bogeys and a triple-bogey on six.

Coastal (292-296=588) surrendered four strokes to Campbell (297-292=589) over the second round of play, but the Chants continue to lead the Fighting Camels one stroke with 18 holes to play. Gardner-Webb (306-310=616) is third on the team leaderboard followed by Charleston Southern (315-305=620).
