The Buccaneers, who fired a team score of 306 and are just eight strokes back of team-leading Texas-San Antonio, were led by freshman Gabriella Wahl (Heidenheim, Germany) thanks to a 3-over-par 75 that tied her for 12th on the individual leaderboard.
Wahl is five strokes back of Purdue’s Kishi Sinha, who holds a two-stroke lead over teammate Laura Gonzalez. Along with Wahl, the Bucs got a pair of 4-over 76s from sophomore Larissa Steinfeldt (Eschweiler, Germany) and senior Mayte Vizcarrondo (Cadiz, Spain).
