Sioux Falls, S.D. - Blustery conditions made low scores a real challenge on Monday as the University of North Dakota women's golf team stands in sixth place after the opening 36 holes of the Jackrabbit Fall Invitational played Monday at the Minnehaha Country Club.

Junior Mikayla Kromy led UND with a 162 (+20) after shooting an 81 in both of her rounds. Kromy is one stroke ahead of sophomore Sadie Martin, who opened with a 77 (+6), but carded an 86 (+15) in her final 18 holes (163,+21).

Kromy is tied for 10th, while Martin is tied for 12th. UND's team score was a 663, but only 13 shots stand between second-place Augustana and the Green and White. Host South Dakota State opened up a 15-stroke lead on the eight-team field after posting a 635 (+67).

Freshman Dani DelGreco is also in the top 20 after the opening 36 holes as she sits in a tie for 17th after a 164 (+22). UND was in fourth after the opening round, but a second-round score 15 strokes higher saw the team slide to sixth by the end of the day.

The teams will conclude the 54-hole tournament with 18 more holes on Tuesday morning.
