Oct 22, 2022

STANFORD, Calif. – No. 1 Stanford extended its lead with a 3-under 281 on Saturday afternoon during the second day of the Stanford Intercollegiate.

Stanford, which is seeking its third straight tournament title fto open the fall season, checks in at 11-under through two rounds for a total of 557. The Cardinal owns a seven-stroke lead over San Jose State (564) while third-place Iowa State (568) is even.

Stanford is attempting to defend its home tournament crown, cruising to last year's Stanford Intercollegiate championship by finishing with a 28-under 824, matching a school record for a 54-hole score.

Also looking to repeat as individual champion is sophomore Rose Zhang, who leads the field at 11-under for a total of 131. Zhang fired a 6-under 65 on Saturday, producing five of her seven birdies on the back nine. Zhang enters Sunday's final round seven shots clear of three players tied at 4-under.

Junior Sadie Englemann is tied for fifth overall at 3-under, delivering two birdies over her first four holes of the day.

Rounding out the Cardinal's top-five are Megha Ganne (1-over, 143) in a tie for 22nd, Rachel Heck (2-over, 144) in a tie for 28th and Rebecca Becht (3-over, 145) in a tie for 36th.
