NOTRE DAME, Ind. --- The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga women's golf team is in ninth place after 36 holes at the NCAA Central Regional at Warren Golf Course Friday.  Chattanooga's 309 today gives it a two-day total of 612.

The Mocs are two shots behind eighth-place Arkansas at 610.  The top eight teams advance to the NCAA Championship May 17-20 at Traditions Golf Club in Bryan, Texas.

"We just couldn't get anything going today," said head coach Colette Murray.  "No one was able to really post a score.  Minnesota was the only team to break 300 so it was a tough day overall.

"There are seven teams within nine strokes of each other for the eighth spot," Murray added.  "We're just four shots behind sixth place. Tomorrow is going to be an exciting day for a lot of teams."

Christine Wolf (Igls, Austria) and Emma de Groot (Coffs Harbour, New South Wales, Australia) led the Mocs with twin rounds of 76 (+4).  That moves Wolf into a tie for 21st at 151, while de Groot is tied for 39th at 153.

Maria Juliana Loza is tied with Wolf in 21st shooting six-over par 78 today.  Jordan Britt (Chattanooga, Tenn.) rounded out the team scoring with a 79 (+7).  Marion Duvernay (Publier, France) had the drop score with an 80 (+8).

No. 2 UCLA leads at 592 (+16).  The Bruins shot 301 in round two and lead No. 8 LSU and Minnesota by six shots as the duo is tied for second at 598.  Host Notre Dame is fourth with a 36-hole total of 603.

Emily Tubert of Arkansas leads the medalist chase at level par 144 after today's 75 (+3). Ani Gulugian (UCLA) is second at 145 (+5). Austin Ernst (LSU) and Samantha Sommers (Minnesota) are tied for third at plus two (146).

Arkansas holds the coveted eighth spot at 610 with the Mocs just two shots behind the Razorbacks in ninth.  Ohio State is fifth just five shots ahead of UTC and one stroke clear of No. 24 Stanford and Northwestern in sixth.

No. 17 Texas is in 10th, one behind the Mocs.  Kent State and No. 14 Tulane are tied for 11th at 615 which is one shot in front of No. 5 Duke and No. 15 Wake Forest in 13th.

"It will be a shootout tomorrow," Murray concluded.  "That's 10 teams within nine shots playing for four spots.  We need to take advantage of our opportunities."

Chattanooga returns to the No. 1 tee at 8 a.m., Saturday morning paired with Stanford and Arkansas.  Britt leads off followed by Duvernay, de Groot, Wolf and Loza.  Live scoring can be accessed on GoMocs.com at the link above or through the women's golf schedule page.
