WILMINGTON, N.C. (May 19, 2010) - Despite poor weather conditions throughout the day, ETSU sophomore Nina Muehl (Vienna, Austria) posted a solid score during second round play in the NCAA Championships Wednesday at the Country Club of Landfall.

 

Muehl, the first female golfer in ETSU history to participate in the finals, carded a 1-over-par 73 in the second round to move up 25 spots on the leaderboard and end the day tied for 62nd. After finishing with a 5-over 77 in the first round, Muehl posted the type of score she needed to regain her confidence and improve her standing.

 

"The rain and thunderstorms made it tough all day," said ETSU head coach Stefanie Shelton. "But I was really proud of Nina because even with the bad weather she remained very composed all day and hit the ball well."

 

Ranked 59th nationally, Muehl posted a round that included four birdies. However, three bogeys and a double bogey on the par four 14th left her at 1-over on the day.

 

After the second round, Muehl is 13 strokes off the pace set by individual leader Jennifer Johnson of Arizona State, who stands at 7-under 137 (67-70). Johnson leads by just one stroke over Southern California's Jennifer Song.

 

Third round action will begin again early Thursday morning. Fans can stay up-to-date with Muehl's progress by visiting Golfstat.com for live scoring, and ETSUBucs.com will provide a complete wrap up after each day's action.
