MIAMI, Fla. (Feb. 28, 2011) - Senior Nina Muehl (Vienna, Austria) continued her impressive play, carding a 1-under-par 71 to move up to fourth on the individual leaderboard during Monday's second round action in the Sir Pizza Cards Challenge at the Weston Hills Country Club.
Muehl's efforts kept the Bucs from falling very far on the team leaderboard, as they finished the day at 314 and are in eighth place, ahead of programs such as South Florida, Cincinnati, N.C. State, Mississippi State and Kansas State. Florida International currently leads the tournament by two strokes over both Miami and Memphis, while the Bucs are 18 strokes off the leaders' pace.
Individually, Sara-Maude Juneau of Louisville holds the top spot by one stroke over USF's Shena Yang. Muehl finds herself just three strokes back of Juneau entering the final day of play.
Other ETSU results included a tie for 19th by freshman Sian Evans (Gillingham, England), while fellow freshman Larissa Steinfeldt (Eschweiler, Germany) is tied for 52nd.
The Bucs will wrap up action in the Sir Pizza Cards Challenge with third and final round action on Tuesday. For more on ETSU women's golf, visit ETSUBucs.com and click on the women's golf link.
