Boulder City, Nev. -- Senior captain Alexis Guggisberg paced the North Dakota women's golf team in the opening two rounds of the Battle at Boulder Creek II Monday. Guggisberg was seven shots better in her second round, carding a team-low 79 (+7) to sit in a tie for 27th.
UNLV is running away with the team race after shooting a 564 (-12) in the opening 36 holes. The Runnin' Rebels are 33 shots clear of Georgetown (597; +21). UND and Idaho State are tied for sixth after posting scores of 682 (+106).
