The second day of the women’s golf WAC Championships saw both Fresno State junior Laura Luethke and her teammates slip in the standings.

After shooting a two-under par opening round score of 70, Luethke sat in first place with a three-shot lead over Nevada’s Kelly Burke and Boise State’s Lindsey Huebert.

However, Luethke’s quest for a WAC championship was derailed on the second day of competition as she shot a disappointing nine over par score of 81. Luethke’s score moved her two-day total to 151 and placed her into a three-way tie for fifth place, four shots back heading into the third round.

Fresno State’s second round troubles weren’t solely limited to Luethke.
An opening round score of 305 placed the Bulldogs’ in second place behind Hawaii.

But a 318 score on the second-day of competition dropped the team from second to sixth, 21 shots behind Idaho with only one round left to play.
