ANKENY - The NIACC women's golf team shot a second-day 361 at the NJCAA Region XI tournament Saturday at Otter Creek Golf Course.

NIACC has a two-day total of 366-361 - 727.

On Saturday, the Lady Trojans were led by freshman Jordyn Barragy with a career-best 86. Barragy, whose previous career best round was 90 twice, is the Lady Trojans' two-day leader with a 91-86 - 177.

Also for NIACC on Saturday, Morgan Luecht shot an 87, Sydney Fullerton shot a 93 and Ashley Alert shot a 95.

"I couldn't be more pleased with how Morgan and Jordyn played (Saturday)," NIACC coach Chris Frenz said. "They followed up an OK round on Friday with solid scores (Saturday) and put themselves into contention next weekend."

The 87 by Luecht matched her career-best round that she also shot on day four of last year's regional tournament.

After two days at the regional tournament, Luecht has shot a 92-87 - 179, Fullerton has shot a 89-93 - 182 and Alert is at 94-95 - 189.

"Sydney struggled putting (Saturday) and probably cost herself about five strokes on the greens," Frenz said, "but she's definitely with striking distance.

"Ashley just couldn't get anything going (Saturday). She's not out of it by a long shot because she has the ability to score well on this course."

Iowa Western leads the tournament heading into next weekend's final 36 holes with a 326-321 - 647. Iowa Lakes is in second with a 342-322 - 664 and DMACC is in third with a 364-361 - 727.

NIACC is in fourth place with a 366-361 - 727.

Southwestern's Bianca Findlay and Iowa Western's Lisa Lied remain tied for the individual medalist lead at 155. They both shot first-day 78s on Friday and both shot 77 on Saturday.

The final two rounds of the 72-hole tournament are set for Friday and Saturday back at Otter Creek Golf Course.

The top team and top 10 individuals not on the winning team qualify for the NJCAA Division I national tournament May 13-16 in Daytona Beach, Fla.

"We need to go out there next week and give it all we have to get to Daytona," Frenz said.
