“Our ball striking wasn’t as consistent today and we scrambled a little more,” UW head coach Josey Stender said. “We are still tightly grouped going into the last day. We need to make more birdies and that is the difference in the field. We have to take advantage of our length off the tee. The great thing about this group is we have a team that anyone can step up. It is a good reminder at how competitive we are and if we get on the same page, we can have a good finish.”

Wyoming was led by Kyla Wilde with her second-straight 73 (+1) for a two-round score of 146 (+2) for a tie for 14th place. She recorded four-birdies for the day and three on the first nine holes.

“Kyla (Wilde) is getting a lot out of her game to score and be competitive,” Sender said.

Morgan Ryan added a 75 (+3) on Wednesday and is tied with Jaden Gonzalez for 30th place with a two-round score of 151(+7). Gonzalez added a 79 (+7) in the second round. Sophie Spiva added a 76 (+4) for a two-round score of 155 (+9). She is in 39th place. Tomine Bjerkelo added a 78 (+6) and is tied for 42nd at 157 (+13).

San Jose State leads the Championships with a score of 568 (-8). UNLV is in second at 577 (+1) followed by New Mexico at 578 (+2). Lauren Lehigh of New Mexico leads the field at five-under. She is followed by Lucia Lopez-Ortega at four-under par.

The final round of action starts tomorrow morning and can be seen live on the MW Championships page.
