Freshman Kelly Ransom (CMC) shot a four-over 76 today to bump her from eighth place to fourth overall. Reigning champion, sophomore Margaret Loncki (CMC) posted a 77 in round two, much improved from the 83 in the first round to bring her up into a tie for seventh place with teammate sophomore Maya Bhat (CMC). Bhat was also under 80 today with a 79 to round out the Athenas in the top-10.
