Sam Falk looks to challenge leader Hathryn Hauff of St. Olaf on day two.

After the second full day of golf at the 2011 MIAC Championships being held Oct. 1-3 in Coon Rapids, Minn., the Gustavus women’s golf team remains in striking distance in second following back-to-back 321’s.  The Gusties, who are currently sitting at a 642 (+66), trail St. Olaf who shot a 320 on day two and lead with a two-day total 629 (+53).  Saint Ben’s rounds out the top-three in third at 655 (+66).

Sam Falk matched her first day score of 77 on day two as well, sitting in second place heading into day three with a two-day total of 154 (+10).  Falk will look to challenge current leader Kathryn Hauff of Saint Ben’s who shot a 78 on day two and leads by three strokes at a 151 (+7).

Taylor Drenttel is still in the top-10 after hitting an 82 on Sunday.  She is in a tie for ninth at +17 (161).  The final three Gusties in the lineup sit back-to-back-to-back in the standings with Liz Strom in 12th with an 82-81-163 (+19), Ann Jackson in 13th at 83-81-164 (+20), and Kayleigh Dittes in 14th with an 83-82-165 (+21).

“We have yet to get into a good rhythm – putts have not fallen,” said Head Coach Scott Moe. “Tomorrow is going to be a good day, we are going to get off to a good start and put the pressure on right away.  St Olaf has played well and they will need to continue to play well tomorrow as well to hold us off.  I expect a great battle.”

The third and final day of the MIAC Championships will begin at 9:00 a.m. tomorrow morning.  The team and individual pairings are based on the results after 36 holes. Following Monday’s round, there will be a short awards ceremony to recognize both team champions, the individual medalists, and the All-MIAC (Top 10) selections for each gender. The men’s and women’s team champions will receive the MIAC’s automatic bid to the 2012 NCAA Division III Golf Championships.
