Four of SDSU's five golfers improved their first round score with the most significant performance coming from sophomore Anna Booth (Coffs Harbour, Australia). Booth logged a 4-over 76, an eight-stroke improvement from her first round score of 84. Her 76 tied for sixth-best on the day in the 101-golfer field and vaulted her from 63rd to 32nd place on the individual leaderboard. Booth was even par through the first nine holes and was at 1-over before double bogeying the 17th and bogeying the 18th.
Freshman Heather Wilson (Chula Vista, Calif.) shaved one stroke off her first-round score with a 79, to post a two-day total of 15-over 159, which ties for 26th. Junior Jamie Oliver (Los Alamitos, Calif.) and senior Megan Mulhaupt (Trabuco Canyon, Calif.) both carded 82s, while freshman Maki Kamimura (West Covina, Calif.) was one behind with an 83.
SDSU is just one stroke out of 10th place, but remains a good distance behind tournament leader New Mexico, which holds an 11-shot lead over the 19-team field. Lobo Mikaela Backstedt vaulted from fourth to first in the individual race with a second round 70 for a two-day score of 144 (E).
