LUBBOCK, Texas - After two rounds of play Monday at the McHaney/Moorehead Invitational held at the Rawls Course, the Texas Tech women's golf team is in first place heading into the final round on Tuesday.

The Lady Raiders fired a 25-over 609 through the first two rounds of play to take a four-stroke lead over Georgia State, who sits in second place at a 29-over 613. Fellow Big 12 competitors Colorado and Oklahoma are in the third and fourth spots, respectively, with 18 holes remaining.

Sitting in fourth place with a 313 after round one, Tech blistered the course with a four-over 296 in the second round to move ahead of GSU. The Lady Raiders' second round score of 296 was by far the best round of the day, placing it a whole 11 shots ahead of the Bulldogs' 307 from the first round.

Junior Megan Dowdy found herself atop the leaderboard after 36 holes. The Leander, Texas, product fired a one-over 147 to pace Tech. Her second-round score of 71 tied for the lowest round score of the day.

Two other Lady Raiders also turned in strong performances Monday. Ulrika Van Niekerk shot a seven-over 153 to put herself in seventh place, while Rosalyn Kim was close behind Monday with an 11th-place 154. Gloriana Soto, 156, and Alex Gibson, 162, rounded out the Lady Raiders' scoring through two rounds.

The action will tee off tomorrow morning at 8:30 a.m., with Tech starting on the first hole by virtue of its performance Monday.
