Sun Devil Women’s Golf jumped up five spots into sixth place to secure a spot in the Top-15, advancing to the final day of stroke play.

“We have improved each day and look forward to continuing that trend tomorrow,” Head Coach Missy Farr-Kaye remarked. “This is a competitive environment and some really good teams will get left out, so we need to keep getting better to ensure we are in that Top-8 tomorrow.”

Freshman Ashley Menne put together a historic round, carding a 65 (-7) to match the Sun Devil NCAA Championship record set by Grace Park.

“Ashley has so much potential and she showed a glimpse of what she is capable of today,” said Farr-Kaye. “Really proud of her performance. She didn’t get too high or too low, just remained steady and gave us a huge boost. Can’t wait to watch her compete for the individual title.”

Menne sits in a tie for third, only seven strokes back of overall leader Stanford’s Rachel Heck and two strokes back of second place after matching the lowest round of anyone in the field to this point.

“From the start of the day I was hitting irons really well, so that allowed me to make most of the greens,” Ashley Menne reflected following her 65. “My putting was really on today. I made a lot of birdie putts both inside 10 feet and outside of 20 feet. Everything was going in.”

Freshman Rachel Heck leads the championship at 10-under 206 (69-67-70), while teammate Angelina Ye is second at 5-under 211, which included a 7-under 65, 12 shots better than her opening round 77.
