OWINGS MILLS, Md. – Marina Alex made four straight pars early on the back nine but shot a second-round 9-over (81) at the NCAA Women’s Golf Championship on Wednesday.

The Vanderbilt freshman, who was an individual qualifier for the event, is tied for 98th in the field of 126 at 16-over with two rounds to play. She was tied for 79th after the first round when she shot 7-over.

Her birdie on the third hole – a 49-2yard par- 5 – was no enough to overcome six bogeys and two double bogeys.

UCLA’s Maria Jose Uribe is the individual leader at 3-under following a second-round 66. UCLA also leads the team standings at 13-over.
