Feb. 25, 2013
The Missouri State women's golf team is tied for the lead entering Tuesday's (Feb. 26) final round of its spring opener, the Islander Classic in Corpus Christi, Texas.
The Bears share the top spot with Lamar after both teams posted 317 in Monday's morning round, while the afternoon round was cancelled due to high winds that gusted up to 65 mph and reportedly caused power outages in the area. The final 18 holes is scheduled for an 8:15 a.m. shotgun start Tuesday at Corpus Christi Country Club.
Sophomore Megan Thompson led the way for MSU on a day when just 15 players broke 80, shooting a five-over-par 77 to tie for fourth place. Senior Emma Clegg was a shot behind at 78 and in a tie for seventh. Freshmen Ariel Tidwell and Megan Furnish are tied for 21st after carding 81. Freshman Lindsey Eisenreich shot 91 and is tied for 67th. Bradley's Danielle Lemek fired an even-par 72 to claim the lead in the medalist race.
In the team standings, North Texas is third, four strokes behind the co-leaders with 321. Oral Roberts and Sam Houston State are tied for fourth at 322, while host Texas A&M-Corpus Christi recorded 325 and is tied for sixth with Oklahoma City.
Stephen F. Austin is eighth in the 14-team field at 330, followed by Central Arkansas (332), McLennan C.C. (334), Houston Baptist and Bradley (337), Texas-Pan American (345) and Texas A&M-Kingsville (365).
