Daytona Beach, FL. - The Florida Atlantic University women's golf team continued its rise to the top of the leader board with a team round of 307, the second lowest score of the round, to finish second overall after day two of the Atlantic Sun Championships at Indigo Lakes Golf Club. Natalia Navarro shot the third lowest total for the second round to shoot up 24 spots to sixth place and Anne Fraser continued her consistent pace to finish third overall.
Navarro, who shot an 81 the previous day, fired a 73 to move from 30th to sixth place individually. Fraser dropped two spots from the lead with a second round 77 but is still only two-strokes back from leader Sam White of Georgia State University. Amanda Pettit slipped as well but kept herself in the top-11 with an 80. Jessica Carafiello rebounded from a tough first day to shave nine strokes off of her score with a 77 while Heidi von Korff improved one-stroke to finish with an 81.
