KIAWAH ISLAND, S.C. -- The Bucknell women's golf team improved by one stroke over its first-round score but dropped a few places in the team standings following day two of the Edwin Watts Kiawah Island Classic. After opening with a 324 at Oak Point GC on Sunday, the Bison shot 323 at Osprey Point on Monday, and they sit in a tie for 39th place with one round to go.
Katie Childers was the low Bison in round No. 2 with a 5-over-par 77. Childers' card featured 13 pars and five bogeys. Bucknell's contingent started the day on the 10th hole at Osprey Point, and after making the turn in 40, Childers made eight straight pars.
Each of the other four Bison in the lineup shot 82. Emily Larson, Lindsay Dodovich, Anna Dailey and Meredith Langs all made one birdie apiece. Dodovich was coming off an opening-round 75, but her second round was undermined by one tough hole.
Coastal Carolina is the 36-hole team leader at 584 total. The Chanticleers have a seven-shot lead over second-place East Tennessee State. First-round co-leader College of Charleston fell into a tie for third place with Charleston Southern.
Laura Fuenfstueck of College of Charleston shot a 4-under 68 on Monday, and at 6-under for the tournament she has a slim one-stroke advantage over Malene Krolboll Hansen of Coastal Carolina.
Bucknell will return to the Oak Point course for the final round on Tuesday.
