SALISBURY, N.C. – The Saint Leo women’s golf team maintained its eighth place position after Round Two of the 2010 NCAA South Regional Tournament hosted by Catawba College at the 6,094-yard, Par-71 Country Club of Salisbury. The 54-hole tournament will conclude on Tuesday. The top three teams and the top three individuals not a member of the three qualifying teams will advance to the NCAA II Nationals.

Sophomore Goeun Lee (73-83—156), who finished the first round in fourth place, slipped to 18th after a posting an 83 in the second-18.  Improving her score by two strokes, senior Anna Riss (81-79—160) jumped to 25th after completing her 36 holes.

In 29th place, Suzanne Ervin (82-79—161) also made an improvement on her first-day score, as did junior Kristina Carvalho (87-78—165), who made the best jump on the Lions’ squad, improving her score nine strokes to sit in 40th place.
