Brooks And Jennings Lead Drake At Bob Hurley ORU Shootout
The Bulldogs fired rounds of 313 and 321 to post a 36-hole total of 634 to stand tied for 11th among the 13 competing schools.
"After a solid opening round, I was a little disappointed with our effort over the final 18 holes today," Drake head coach Leanne Smith commented. "That being said, we find ourselves only six shots outside of sixth place. If we can come out strong tomorrow and put a good round together, we can be in contention for a finish in the top half."
Junior Hadley Jennings (Trenton, Mo.) led the Bulldogs' effort carding a 151 (74-77=151) total and is tied for fifth.
Drake's most-impressive performance came courtesy of Brooks, who put together rounds of 77 and 75 for a 152 total to stand tied for seventh.
Senior Chelsey Falk (Glenwood, Minn.) contributed a 36-hole total of 158 (77-81=158) and is tied for 30th place.
"It was good to see Hadley (Jennings) continue her solid run of play, while Chelsey (Falk) turned in quality rounds today," said Smith. "I was encouraged to see Ashley (Brooks) come out and fire an 85 in her first collegiate round, while her twin sister, Danielle, put together a pair of strong rounds today for us."
The final 18 holes of the Bob Hurley ORU Shootout swings into action with an 8:30 a.m. shotgun start on Tuesday (Oct. 2).
