The Dalton State College women's golf team didn't play as well Wednesday as it did the first day of the NAIA National Championships at Lincoln Park Golf Course in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, but coach Jim McGrew is still looking up.
The Lady Roadrunners made the cut for the final two days of the tournament finishing Wednesday in fourth place after their combined round of 309 (+21). Dalton State was in second place after Tuesday's first round.
"It wasn't the day we were looking for, but we made the cut and that's the first goal," McGrew said. "We just gave too many away today."
Dalton State sits behind three other teams heading into today's third round including leader British Columbia with a team score of 590 (+14). The Lady Roadrunners have a team score of 602 (+26).
Isabel Rijos leads Dalton State and is tied for ninth individually with a score of 146 (+2) after her round of 75 (+3) on Wednesday. Katie Dalton is tied for 22nd with a 149 (+5) and Hannah Gasaway is tied for 39th with a 153 (+9).
McGrew said his players are looking to turn it around today.
"What you want at the end of the third day is to be still in it, and we are in position," he said. "We are sitting in fourth behind three good teams, but we are still in the mix."
The final round of the tournament is Friday.
