SPRINGFIELD, Ill. – Senior Hadley Jennings (Trenton, Mo.) recorded the second-lowest round (70) in Drake women’s golf history to lead the Bulldogs to a 311 second-round scorecard at the Missouri Valley Conference Championship hosted by the Panther Creek Golf Club on Monday (April 21).

Jennings’ performance was one stroke off the all-time best mark by a Bulldog set by Olivia Lansing, who fired a 69 during the second round of the 2009 MVC Championship. The effort vaulted Jennings into fifth place with a 36-hole total of 148 (78-70).

As a team, Drake finds itself in eighth place with a 616 (305-311) scorecard.

“Hadley (Jennings) turned in a great round for us today and Arianna (Gastelum) was again solid with her performance,” Drake head coach Leanne Smith commented. “Ashley (Brooks) bounced back and really helped us today. Katie (Clausen) had a solid round today despite struggling a little bit with her putter. Hopefully we can put up a good round tomorrow and see where we finish.”

Freshman Arianna Gastelum (Chula Vista, Calif.) followed up her opening-round 72 with a score of 75 on the tournament’s second day to move into fourth place with a 147 (72-75) total.

Sophomore Katie Clausen (Hinton, Iowa) posted an 83 during the second round to maintain a 36-hole mark of 161 (78-83), good for a 41st-place tie.

Juniors Ashley Brooks (Red Wing, Minn.) and Danielle Brooks (Red Wing, Minn.) made up the remainder of Drake’s scoring contingent recording rounds of 83 and 88, respectively.

The Bulldogs take to the course for the final round of the MVC Championship on Tuesday (April 22). Tee times begin play starting at 9:00 a.m.

DRAKE RESULTS: Arianna Gastelum (72-75=147/T-4th), Hadley Jennings (78-70=148/T-5th), Katie Clausen (78-83=161/T-41st), Danielle Brooks (77-88=165/T-48th) and Ashley Brooks (94-83=177/50th).
