MELBOURNE, Fla. – The No. 3 Arkansas women’s golf team braved through tough playing conditions in the second round of the Moon Golf Invitational, moving one spot into fifth place. Arkansas shot 10-over 298, as just one team finished even and the other 16 finished over par in the round, which had to stop temporarily for 30 minutes due to weather. The Hogs were three strokes off from moving to first place after 12-15 holes but found trouble in the final three holes with five bogeys across all five players. With an 11-over 587 (298-298), Arkansas is four strokes behind fourth-place Northwestern (+7), while Auburn and LSU hold onto a tie for the lead at 3-under 573.

Her par 3s average after two rounds continues to be tied for the best in the field at 2.75.

Ela Anacona tallied a 2-over 74 behind four birdies and eight pars. Her six bogeys, including three along the back nine pushed her above par on the day, but she still managed to move 21 spots on the leaderboard, heading into the final round in a tie for 36th with a 5-over 149 (75-74).

Maria José Marin started the day strong but had trouble along the back nine. She logged seven pars, one birdie and just one bogey along the front nine but had two bogeys and a double bogey across her final nine holes.
