GREENSBORO, N.C. - The Bridgewater College women's golf team shot 362 for second straight day at Bryan Park, holding third but dropping further back from second-place Shenandoah at the ODAC Championship.

Jesse Bartley rolled in a 20-footer down the hill for birdie on her 18th hole to shoot 87. Steady play has her in a tie for sixth with one round to go, after a solid second round marred only by two triple bogeys.

"We have posted a couple of team scores well above our average so far, and it's mainly because of blow-up holes," said head coach John Rogers. "As a team we had 22 holes above bogey today, and we will work to minimize the errors tomorrow."

With one birdie and three double-bogeys, Amanda Kelley came in with an 87. She is 12th overall heading into her final career round on Tuesday.

Abby Papke turned with an impressive 42 on the front nine (starting on #10)- likely her lowest nine-hole score in college. Four doubles and a quintuple bogey on the back led to a 94.

Heather Donnelly also posted 94 and sits in 18th place. She chipped in for quintuple bogey on the second hole and had a triple bogey as well, but had a four-hole stretch in the middle of the round at even par. Hannah Woodson shot 102.

"We got off to a slow start today and tried hard to rally, but did not maintain the momentum," said Rogers. "Nonetheless, the ladies were the only full team among 18 teams here to head to the driving range after the round today, and I applaud their dedication to their sport. This championship has not gone according to plan, but you can bet these ladies will go hard until the end."

The Eagles trail Shenandoah by 35 strokes for second place, and W&L has a commanding lead on the field. Final round play begins at 8:30 a.m. tomorrow.
