SPRINGFIELD, N.J. — Dartmouth junior Jane Lee (North Shore City, New Zealand) carded a four-over 76 to lead the Big Green on the second day of the Ivy League Women’s Golf Championship at Baltusrol Golf Club on Saturday afternoon. After two rounds of play, Dartmouth has a firm hold on sixth place after recording a 327 (+39) to finish the day at 653 (+77).

Leading the field by 18 strokes is Harvard, which matched its opening-round 297 to sit at 18-over par for the tournament. Princeton and Yale are tied for second at 36-over, while Penn is at 615 (+39) and Columbia one stroke behind the Quakers.

Harvard’s Anne Cheng has a four-stroke lead at the top of the leaderboard at two-under par.

One day after making par on just seven holes, Lee picked up her game in the second round with 12 pars and a birdie with five bogeys. The birdie came early in the round on the 364-yard, par-4 fourth hole, and combined with her 12-over 84 yesterday, Lee is tied for 21st place at 16-over.

Although freshman Tara Simmons (Goldsboro, N.C.) could not duplicate her first-round 76 on the second day of competition, she still has the low score overall for the Big Green with a 14-over 158. The day began well for the rookie with a birdie on the opening hole, a long par-4 at 463 yards. But she bogeyed nine of the next 16 holes and took a double bogey to end her day in a tie for 18th.

Senior Sarah Knapp (Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla.), like Simmons, started the day at four-over par, only to find the Upper Course more challenging the second time around. On the front nine, she scored par on five holes and bogeyed the other four, but the back nine was less forgiving as she played it at eight-over par to finish with an 84 (+12) on the round and tied with Lee in 21st place at 16-over for the tournament.

Junior Savannah Grice (Atlanta, Ga.) improved by seven strokes from the first round to the second with a 13-over 85, including a birdie on the 136-yard, par-3 15th hole. Rounding out the Dartmouth golfers was senior Kathryn Kennedy (Medina, Minn.) with a 19-over 91.

The final round will begin on Sunday morning with Dartmouth teeing off at 8 a.m.
