KIAWAH ISLAND, S.C. – Following a second round 76, Charleston Southern freshman Ellen Hume is tied for 16th place at the Palmetto Intercollegiate at Turtle Point Golf Club. CSU sits in 16th place as a team entering Tuesday's final round.
Host College of Charleston maintained its round one lead with a three-over par 291. The Cougars enjoy a nine-shot lead on Kansas and a ten-shot edge on Campbell. CofC's Clarissa von Stosch turned in her second straight effort in red numbers to get to -5 overall. Campbell's Anna Nordfors matched the tournament's low round with a four-under 68 to close within three of von Stosch.
Cold, windy conditions made play difficult for much of the 18-team field. CSU compiled a 319 composite score and is currently in front of Elon and Western Carolina.
Hume, who was tied for fifth at the start of play, went two-over par on each side. Freshman Natalie Nelson contributed CSU's second best score of the day with an 80, while Andriel Aimua and Xuss Boira also chipped in counted scores.
CSU will play its final round alongside Elon and Western Carolina, with the shotgun start set to begin at 9 a.m.
