"Alexis has been one of our more consistent players and she is starting to play well here in the spring," UND head coach Natalie Martinson said. "She made some clutch putts today and finished with a birdie, which was a great way to cap her day."
Sophomore Sadie Martin was one of three UND golfers to turn in an 82 in the opening round, but she improved that score by three strokes in round two to trail Guggisberg by a stroke.
Martin, senior Amanda Fairweather and freshhman Dani DelGreco each carded an 82 (+10) with the latter duo posting its best scores of the day in the morning.
