COLUMBUS, Ohio – The University of Houston Women’s Golf program bettered its First-Round score by 23 strokes to move up into 13th place following the Second Round of the NCAA Columbus Regional on Tuesday afternoon.

After a tough first day under cold and, sometimes, windy conditions, the Cougars rallied to post a total of 300 as a team to move into 13th with a 36-hole score of 623.

Junior Megan Thothong posted the team’s low round of the day with a 74 on the 6,416-yard, par-72 Scarlet Course at Ohio State Golf Club. The Dallas native led Houston with five birdies in the Second Round, including three during her final three holes of the day to move into a tie for 46th at 155.

Sophomore Leonie Harm enjoyed similar success on her second nine with two birdies and only one bogey and was tied for 28th at 152 to lead the Cougars.

Junior Ivon Reijers was tied for third at 160, while juniors Courtney Tibiletti and Allie Andersen were tied for 75th at 161.

No. 4 Florida continued to hold the team lead with a score of 590 but saw its advantage slip to only one stroke over 29th-ranked and host Ohio State. No. 5 Florida State (597), No. 12 South Carolina (598), No. 33 Michigan (605) and No. 27 Purdue (607) stood just above the cut line.

No. 21 Texas A&M (609), No. 13 Arkansas (610), No. 20 Colorado (612), No. 37 San Jose State (614) and No. 46 Louisville (614) rounded out the top-11 teams.

12th-ranked Maddie Szeryk of Texas A&M moved into the individual leader with a score of 143 after posting a 2-under 70 in the Second Round. No. 63 Elodie Van Dievoet (Michigan) and No. 69 Jaclyn Lee (Ohio State) were tied for second at 145 with five golfers tied for fourth at 146.

Szeryk, Arkansas’ Cara Gorlei (146) and Louisville’s Molly Skapik (147) were the leading individuals not on a top-six team following the Second Round.
