Women’s golf sits at No. 6 overall after two rounds of 18-team UCF Challenge.


Women’s golf struggled in the second round of the UCF Challenge, finishing the round sixth overall with a score of 20-over par for the tournament.

Julia Beck’s score of 71 led the Longhorn charge for the day and propelled the junior into a tie for the 18th-best score in the tournament.

Junior Hayley Mills and sophomore Sophia Schubert both turned in 75-stroke performances. Mills’s showing was good enough to maintain the best two-day score on the team with a mark of 147. The junior holds the 13th-best score in the tournament and currently sits six strokes behind tournament leaders Missouri senior Michelle Butler and East Carolina senior Frida Gustafsson Spang with one day to go.

Additional showings of 76 and 78 from senior Tezira Abe and freshman Maddie Luitwieler rounded out the Texas showing.

The Longhorns ended the day 9-over, dropping four spots to the sixth-best team score, while first-place Missouri ended the day with a 12-stroke advantage over the Texas going into the final round.
