Lucio Tied For 31st At Longhorn Invitational
March 22, 2004
AUSTIN, Texas - -
Oregon State's Alex Lucio is tied for 31st at Texas' Betsy Rawls Longhorn Invitational after two rounds, but the Beaver women's golf team slipped into 18th with a 345 on Monday at The Hills Country Club (par 72).
With one round to play Tuesday, OSU is in last place at 684, trailing Kansas by two strokes and 16th-place Northwestern by 11.
'This golf course is very demanding, and our course-management skills are not what they should be for this course. So we talked about that today and we'll try a different tactic tomorrow,' OSU coach Rise Lakowske said. 'The lies are thin and the greens are very hard. We just haven't managed it well in terms of hitting the spots we need to hit to get it up and down. We need to improve on that, because we'll see more courses like this in the future.'
Lucio followed her opening-round 80 with an 81 for 17-over 161.
Host Texas, ranked 19th, owns a one-shot lead over No. 22 UNLV with a 50-over-par 626.
Vanderbilt's Chris Brady held on to her first round lead with a 77 Monday; she owns a three-shot lead over SMU's Laura Cross, USC's Catalina Marin, as well as Julie Tvede of Tulsa.
