Baylor WG’s Lonardi Climbs 37 spots to Ninth at NCAA Bryan Regional

BRYAN, Texas – Baylor women’s golf senior Laura Lonardi carded a score of 6-under-par 66 in Friday’s second round at the NCAA Bryan Regional, climbing 37 spots on the leaderboard into a tie for ninth place at 3-under 141 heading to Sunday’s final round at Traditions Club.

Lonardi began from the 10th tee and made a bogey on her first hole, but she played clean golf the rest of the way, recording seven birdies and 10 pars. She quickly rebounded to get back to par on the day with a birdie on No. 11. Additional birdies on Nos. 13 and 17 put her at 2-under at the turn. Another birdie on No. 3 was followed by three consecutive birdies on Nos. 5, 6 and 7 to place her at 6-under.

The top six teams at the regional advance to the NCAA Championships, and the top three individuals not on advancing teams will earn individual spots in the NCAA Championships.  Lonardi is currently tied for third among the six players competing as individuals and one stroke back of the current individual cut of 4-under 140.

Lonardi trails two players competing only as individuals – Gonzaga’s Bianca Pagdanganan (-8, 136) and Oklahoma’s Hannah Wood (-6, 138). The third individual NCAA Championship spot is currently in line for Louisville’s Olivia Cason (-4, 140), whose team is in 11th place and would not advance if the tournament ended today. Lonardi is also tied with fellow individual Alessandra Liu (-3, 141) of William & Mary.

HIGHLIGHTS

  • Lonardi is tied for fifth in par-3 scoring at 2-under 2.75.
  • Lonardi is tied for 12th in par-4 scoring at 1-under 3.95.
  • Lonardi is tied for 35th in par-5 scoring at even-par 5.00.
  • Lonardi’s nine birdies are tied for sixth-most in the 96-player field.

STAT OF THE DAY
66 – Lonardi’s 66 tied the best round by any player in the tournament through the first two rounds. The only other 66 was shot by UCLA’s Bronte Law, who currently leads the field at 9-under 135.

WHAT'S NEXT

    BELTON, Texas – The University of Mary Hardin-Baylor men’s basketball team used clutch free-throw shooting to send the game to overtime and the Cru was able to create separation in the final minute of overtime in a 90-84 overtime win over Wayland Baptist Tuesday night in Belton. The game was an exhibition and does not count in UMHB’s record. The Pioneers, an NAIA program, did count the contest as a regular game and drop to 8-4 on the season with the loss. UMHB led...More >>

    The Panthers are looking to make Mart history this week. If the Panthers are able to beat Gruver on Wednesday, They will be back to back State Champions, a feat no other Mart football team has been able to claim.  But to do so, Mart will have to beat a tough, hard-nosed team from up in the panhandle.  Both teams are 14-1 and went undefeated in district. But now, none of that matters. It's all about who can go 1-0 this week to be named State Champions.  The Pan...More >>
