K-State Moves Up Two Spots on Day Two
Freshman Paige Osterloo was the story of round two for the Wildcats. Starting the day tied for 36th place, Osterloo went to work in round two, shooting a 3-under in the second round and currently sits in a tie for sixth place. Osterloo crushed her personal low round of 74, shooting a 69 in the second round and is at 80-69149 (+5) for the tournament.
“Paige had a great round,” head coach Kristi Knight said. “It was her first under-par competitive round in college. It should give her a great deal of confidence.”
Abbi Sunner was able to stay in the top 10 in round two and sits only one stroke back from Osterloo. Ami Storey is right on the heels of Sunner and Osterloo, carding a 74-77151 (+7), as she is tied for 11th place.
Emily Houtz was able to improve in day two as well as she is currently carding an 80-77157 (+13). Morgan Moon rounds out the K-State squad, carding a 79-81160 (+16).
“Emily improved three shots from the first round,” Knight said. “She is hitting a lot a quality shots and has improved a great deal since the fall.
“I am proud of the team; they have played solid golf and have had great attitudes,” Knight said.
The Wildcats will look to lock up their highest finish of the year in round three in tomorrow’s final round tomorrow, which begins at 7:30 a.m.
