Texas Tech Women's Golf Jumps to Second at New Mexico State

LAS CRUCES, N.M. - The Texas Tech University women's golf team jumped from seventh to second after two rounds of the Diet Coke-Roadrunner Invitational golf tournament, hosted by New Mexico State.

The Red Raiders (601), led by junior Brooke Lowrance's 3-under-par 69, fired a 291 to move eight shots within front running New Mexico State (593). Oklahoma State (604) is third, Texas (605) fourth, Missouri (607) fifth, and Kansas (617) sixth. Baylor (629) is 11th, Oklahoma (635) and Kansas State are tied for 12th, and Colorado (655) is 15th.

Lowrance's low round of the year vaulted her into a five-way tie for second place at 147, three shots off the pace set by New Mexico State's A.J. Eathorne. Senior Kristin Kight fired an even-par 72 and is tied for 10th at 149. Sophomore Jamie Vannoy is tied for 18th (152), freshman Priscillia Hunt is tied for 24th (153) and sophomore Beth Covington is tied for 43rd (157).
