LAS VEGAS – The No. 25 University of Oregon women’s golf team remained in ninth place (299-289-588) after Tuesday’s second round of the Las Vegas Collegiate Showdown at the Boulder Creek Golf Club.

UO posted its second-best score of the fall Tuesday – a one-over 289 – and was only one stroke shy of its season best that it shot the first round of the campaign.

In the overall team standings, No. 19 Arkansas added seven strokes to its lead and held a 18-stroke advantage over No. 11 Arizona (second, 295-276-571), while No. 25 Kent State followed in third place (296-277-573) in the 17-team field.

Individually for UO Tuesday, senior Kendra Little and junior Ashley Edwards matched the team’s low round of the tournament with their 2-under scores of 70.

For Edwards it was her third under-par round of the fall and fifth career-wise, and she led UO for the second time the last three rounds and 10th time overall as a collegian.

Little likewise turned in her third under-par round of the fall and 26th of her career, and led UO for fourth time this slate and 46th time in her career.

In the tourney’s overall standings, Little moved into a tie for 17th place (74-70-144) with freshman Raphaela Dyer (70-74-144) in the 96-player field.

Edwards followed in a tie for 39th overall (78-70-148), and was followed by senior Monika Graf (66th-t, 77-75-152) and sophomore Avery Sills (71st-t, 78-75-153). The latter player turned in her career low, and bettered her previous best (77) from last year’s Baylor Spring Invitational second round.

Glancing at Tuesday’s scorecards, Edwards ended with five birdies, four of which came on a six-hole stretch on holes 2-7. She finished with 12 par scores (#1, 5-6, 8-15, 18), and also had one triple-bogey (#16).

Little collected all four of her birdies on the front nine (holes 1, 4, 6, 9), and altogether ended with 12 par scores (#2-3, 5-7, 8, 10-13, 15-16, 18) and two bogeys (#14, 17).

Among other birdie counts, Graf and Sills each carded two, and Dyer had one.

Overall on the individual leaderboard, Emily Tubert of Arkansas added a stroke to her lead (63-68-131), and held a six-stroke cushion on the field. East Carolina’s Amber Littman (69-68-137) followed in a tie for second place with Arkansas’ Kelli Shean (70-67-137).
