Jayhawks complete round two in seventh

April 6, 2008

NORMAN, Okla. – In Sunday’s opening two rounds, Kansas senior Annie Giangrosso and sophomore Emily Powers led the University of Kansas women’s golf team in day one of the 30th annual Susie Maxwell Berning Classic at the 6,013-yard, par-72 Jimmie Austin OU Golf Club. After completing round one in a tie for fourth place, the Jayhawks slipped three spots in the team leaderboard, finishing the day in seventh place with a combined score of 604.

Giangrosso and Powers each finished in a tie for 17th place with a score of 150 after 36 holes. Giangrosso fired an opening two-over-par 74 in the first round to tie for eighth place, but was unable to secure her spot in the top-10 after carding a 76 in the closing 18 holes of the day. Powers finished the second round with a one-over-par 73 to match the pace of her veteran teammate.

Sophomore Camilla Svensson completed the day just one stroke shy of KU’s leading pair with a second-round 151, good enough for a tie in 23rd place.

Tournament host Oklahoma currently leads the field in both team and individual standings, setting the pace with a seven-stroke lead and two-round score of 587. The Sooners are led by Kendall Dye who fired two consecutive sub-par rounds of 70 and 71 for a second-round 141.

Rounding out the KU field, freshmen Meghna Bal and Grace Thiry posted scores of 154 and 155, respectively. Bal currently sits in a tie for 37th place while Thiry stands in a tie for 40th place after 36 holes.

Competing unattached, redshirt-freshman Sydney Wilson carded first and second rounds of 85 and 79 for a two-round score of 164 to tie in 77th place.

Monday’s final round begins at 8 a.m. with a shotgun start.
