FRANKLIN, Tenn. – Ellie Slama carded a 2-over 74 to lead the Oregon State women's golf team in the second round of the NCAA Franklin Regional on Tuesday.
The Beavers are in eighth place through 36 holes with a 20-over 293-303--596 at the par-72, 6,450-yard Vanderbilt Legends Club North Course.
The top four teams after Wednesday's final round will advance to the NCAA National Championships in Scottsdale, Ariz. Vanderbilt (7-under 569), Alabama (2-under 574), Duke (2-over 578) and Wake Forest (3-over 579) are currently in the top four with 18 holes to play.
