No. 1 Women's Golf Tied for First After Round Two

March 21, 2009

The top ranked Arizona State women's golf team finished day two of the Betsy Rawls Longhorn Invitational sharing the top spot with Purdue. The Sun Devils have shot a 2-over 578 (287-291) over the first two rounds of the tournament held at the par 72 6,324-yard University of Texas Golf Club.

'We had a little bit of an off day,' said seventh year head coach Melissa Luellen. 'We find ourselves tied with a really good Purdue team and we're just going to have to show that we're a top team and play like it.'

Senior Azahara Munoz is currently tied for fourth after shooting a 2-under 70 in the second round. She has carded a 2-under 142 (72-70) over the past two days. Her compatriot Carlota Ciganda is also currently in the top 10. The freshman tallied two eagles and a birdie in the second round, but three boogies and a double boogey on Hole 9 brought her back to par. She is currently tied for seventh at 1-over 145 (73-72).

Juliana Murcia is right out of the top 10 at eleventh. Murcia has shot a 2-over 146 (71-75) over the two days. Jaclyn Sweeney and Giulia Molinaro are tied for 13th. Sweeney shot a 3-over 147 (73-74) while Molinaro finished 3-over 147 (71-76).

Playing as an individual Jennifer Osborn is tied with teammate Ciganda for seventh. Osborn finished at 1-over 145 (70-75).

'The goal tomorrow is to shoot under par and if we do that, I think we'll come away with a victory,' said Luellen.

The Sun Devils tee off tomorrow at 8:45 a.m.
