Bozeman, Mont. - North Dakota sophomore Amanda Fairweather (Maple Valley, Wash.) carded a career-low round as a collegian of 75 (+4) during round two action Monday at the Bobcat Invitational. Fairweather's efforts helped UND shave seven strokes off from its opening round and post a 320 team score.

Montana State maintained its lead (605, +37) in the team standings with a 302 (+18). Utah Valley had the best team score of the day with a 301 (+17), good enough to move into third (612, +44) and seven shots off the Bobcats' pace.

The Wolverines leapfrogged Southern Utah, while Montana stayed in second (609, +41) after carding a 303 (+19). The Grizzlies are four shots behind their Big Sky rivals with only Tuesday's third round remaining.

"Amanda played great today and we played better as a team, but we still have some ground to make up," UND women's golf coach Natalie Martinson said. "We gave back a few strokes late in the round that cost us down the stretch, but we improved seven strokes overall and that was good to see."

Fairweather was one of four UND golfers to improve upon their opening round score. She took six strokes off an opening-round 81 to move into a tie for 14th in the individual standings. Senior Shantel Montgomery (Minot, N.D.) posted an 80 (+9), which was three strokes better than her first 18 on Sunday.

Classmate Robin Hutchinson (Detroit Lakes, Minn.) was a stroke better on Monday, carding an 83 (+12), while sophomore Mikayla Kromy was five strokes better with an 82.
