KERRVILLE – The second day of the WAC Championship belonged to Mathilde Brogens.
The Tarleton freshman posted one of the top scores of the round at the Riverhill Country Club in Kerrville, Texas, to climb into the top-10 of the last and largest tournament of the season for the purple and white. Brogens shot 74 on Tuesday, +2 on the Par 72, 6,196-yard course. She’s now +7 on the tournament, tied-ninth overall.
As a team, Tarleton posted a would-be team score of +24. Because of their reclassification process, the Texans can’t officially complete a team score, but by comparing their numbers to the competition, they’d find themselves fifth on the team leaderboard at +45. New Mexico State leads the 12 participating teams at +21.
After a tough finish to the first round Monday, Brogens came out swinging (pun intended) Tuesday, holing back-to-back birdies on Nos. 4-5 to put herself -1. She’d remain -1 through 11 holes thanks to six straight pars, before finishing +2.
Freshman Angela Inocian strung together strong rounds to start her first WAC Championship, going +5 for a 77 on Tuesday. After her 79, +7, on Monday, she’s shot her first consecutive sub-80 rounds since the Ptarmigan Ram Classic in the fall. At +12, Inocian is tied for 20th.
Sofia Rodriguez followed up her 78 with a 79 on Tuesday, now tied-25th at +13. Alejandra Cambronero is tied with her at +13, shooting 82 in the second round. Bridgett Joeris went +13 for an 85 Tuesday, currently tied-53rd at +27.
Wednesday will be the last competitive round of golf the Texans will play this season. They’ll tee off at the third and final round of the WAC Championship at 7:30 a.m. CT.
