“This course is a brute, but the girls battled hard all day even when things looked grim,” said head coach Jessica Combs. “Taylor played outstanding and I’m so glad to see her get a couple of good rounds in, she held us together today just like she always does. Today was definitely a learning day for all of us on how to handle a tough course in even tougher conditions
After posting a three-over 74 – including an eagle on the par-four 11th – in the first round of the day, Dedmen birdied back-to-back holes and three of the first four she played in the second round at the par-71, 5,987-yard track. The senior from Plant City, Florida added two more birdies on the back nine en route to a two-over 73 on her second 18 holes.
Kaley Campbell carded a pair of nine-over 80’s on the opening day of the Diane Daugherty Invite and is tied for 28th in the field with a two-round score of 160. After posting an 84 in her first round of the day, freshman Erica Scutt bounced back and shot a seven-over 78 in her second round to move into a tie for 38th with a score of 162.

After shooting an opening-round 81 and a second-round 86, senior Shelby Darnell is tied for 55th in the tournament with an aggregate score of 167. Kady Foshaug carded an 80 in the first round of the tournament, but the sophomore had to withdraw during the second round due to an injury.
