Stephens leading Longhorns after second day of tourney

Stephanie Yarbrough

Sophomore Haley Stephens led the Longhorns on Sunday with a 3-under-par 69 after day one of the 2011 UCF Challenge in Sorrento, Fla., earning her fourth place.

She had a four-under after hole 17 but finished the 18th hole with a bogey. Still, she was one of only 13 players out of all 17 teams to card a sub-par round. Stephen’s scoring average of 69 marked the best round of her sophomore year, and she leads Texas with a 71.6 first-round scoring average this season.

The team ranks sixth after two days and a score of 290.

The second round of the tournament resumes this morning at 7:30 a.m, and, like Sunday, will be in a shotgun start off of all 18 tee boxes, with Texas playing alongside fourth-place Kentucky and fifth-place Minnesota.
