OWENS CROSS ROADS, Ala. -- One day after Murray State women's golf set the tournament record for a low round at the Ohio Valley Conference Championships, another Racer added to the record books. Junior Moa Folke fired a title-best 66 on Tuesday at The Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail in Hampton Cove, propelling MSU to a three-shot lead over Eastern Kentucky going into today's final round of championship golf.
The Racers record round of 286 on Monday was followed by a team score of 290 on Tuesday; the 290 marks the third-best team total in OVC Championship history. Murray State has a two-round total of 576 (even par). Eastern Kentucky combined for a team score of 293 on Tuesday and sits at 579 (3-over).
Folke's 66 moved her to within one shot of the individual lead. Folke (5-under 139) was last season's OVC Tournament medalist, but EKU's Elsa Soberly currently owns the advantage after following Monday's 68 with a 70 (6-under 138). MSU's Linette Holmslykke (143) and Lucila Puente (144) are also in the top five after two days. MSU's Raeysha Surendran fell into a tie for 14th with a second-round 77, while teammate Anna Moore fell one spot to 17th with another 76.
The Racers are gunning for their conference-record 10th championship (and first since 2014) with today's final round.The action starts at 8 a.m. and live scoring can be accessed through links at OVCSports.com.
