Cahoon climbs five spots in Division III Women’s Golf Championships

HOWEY-IN-THE-HILLS, Fla. – Huntingdon sophomore LeeAnn Cahoon shot an 82 in the second round of the NCAA Division III Women's Golf Championships on Wednesday.

Cahoon shaved three strokes off her first-round score and has a 36-hole total of 167. She is tied for 39th out of 110 golfers. Cahoon is the first Lady Hawk to qualify for the national tournament. 

"The first round was tough for LeeAnn but today was a little better," Huntingdon Director of Golf Dave Schreyer said. "This is a very tough course. LeeAnn made the turn today at 2-over-par, but this is a ball striker's course and you can lose shots in a hurry.

"LeeAnn is gaining great experience this week on a big stage, which is invaluable. She wants this and she will dig deep to find her game. We had a good practice session after today's round and hopefully we have made some corrections that will help in the final two rounds."

Entering Round 3 at El Campeon Golf Course at the Mission Inn Resort & Club on Thursday, Mary Hardin-Baylor's McKenzie Ralston is setting the pace. Ralston shot a 2-over 74 in the first round and a 1-under 71 on Wednesday for a two-round 145. The University of Redlands' Caroline Ordian is second at 150.

Washington University-St. Louis leads the team standings at 638 and Williams College is second at 641.
