MONTEREY, Calif. - Garnering improved scores from each of its top-five, the Drake women's golf team fired a second-round 320 on Tuesday (March 19) to stand 10th among 14 teams with a 36-hole total of 662 (342-320=662) at the Monterey Bay Invitational hosted by the Del Monte Golf Club.

"We were able to turn in stronger performances today as a team than we showed in the opening round," Bulldog head coach Leanne Smith commented.  "Our goal is to hit more greens and in order to do so we need to show improvement off the tee. We're looking forward to those efforts hopefully paying off in tomorrow's final round."

Junior Chelsey Falk (Glenwood, Minn.) paced Drake's effort shooting a second-round 76, including -1 on the front nine, to sit tied for 26th with a 36-hole score of 162 (86-76=162).

Each of the Bulldogs' top-five carded lower scores in the second round as sophomore Cristina Bowery (Carmel, Calif.), freshman Danielle Brooks (Red Wing, Minn.), sophomore Hadley Jennings (Trenton, Mo.) and senior Paige Menze (Oxbow, N.D.) own tournament scores of 164 (83-81=167/T-38th), 167 (86-81=167/T-46th), 169 (87-82=169/T-70th) and 180 (92-88=180/T-70th), respectively.

Playing as an individual was senior Christy Wittmer (Hampton, Iowa), who carded a 93 for the second-straight day, to sit in 74th place (93-93=186).

Tournament play concludes on Tuesday (March 20) with the final 18 holes.  Tee times begin at 10:00 a.m. CT.
