Sorrento, FL – The status quo held for Austin Peay State University (APSU) women’s golf in Monday’s second round of the Citrus Challenge, which finds the Governors holding strong in fourth place.
Some movement on either side of the Govs will have them battling both for a top-three position as well as looking maintain their place in the top five when final-round action commences Tuesday.
A round-two 306, coupled with Georgia State’s 308 pushing the Panthers back in the pack, has Austin Peay (609) within four shots of third behind Georgia State (605) and within a dozen of Keiser (597). Murray State remains the leader (581) and Dartmouth remains in fifth (612), with Cleveland State (620) lurking.
The top two for the Govs remained unchanged, with freshman Taylor Dedmen posting a 75 and senior Reagan Greene checking in with a 77. For Dedmen, she remains tied for ninth (74-75—149), while Greene is hanging around in hopes of a second straight top-10 finish in this event with a 151 (74-77—151) in 12th, two shots out of the top-10. For the second day in a row, Greene posted an even-par 36 on the back nine.
Junior Meghann Stamps’ second-round 75 equaled Dedmen for the best by a Gov on Monday, enabling her to move 14 spots up the leaderboard to 21st with a 155 (80-75). Only a bogey on the par-4 No. 18—the toughest hole on the course the last two days—kept her from posting matching 37s on the front- and back-nines.
Twins Ashton and Taylor Goodley closed the round for the Govs. Taylor fired a 79, giving her a 156 (77-79) over the first 36 holes, while Ashton is two shots behind her sister at 158 (78-80). Hole No. 9, a 354-yard par-4 which was third-toughest hole Sunday and scarcely any better Monday, was no trouble for Ashton Goodley, who sank a birdie to go out with a 38.
Final-round action commences 7:30am (CT), Tuesday, in a shotgun start; the Govs, paired with Dartmouth and Cleveland State, will be on Holes No. 13-15 to start the day.
