On a day where under-par rounds were needed to make a run at a team title, the No. 36 ISU women’s golf team slipped down the Stanford Intercollegiate leaderboard with an eight-over-par second round total of 292.

The top four teams on the leaderboard, headed by UCLA, all posted under-par team rounds and have added some separation from the field.

Iowa State trails UCLA by 18 shots headed into the final round. 

For the tournament, the Cyclones are at ten-over-par and fell from a tie for sixth place to eighth.

Junior Cajsa Persson has led Iowa State through two rounds. After a two-over-par round of 73, she is at one-under-par for the tournament.

She trails the individual leader, Bronte Law of UCLA, by five shots.

The third and final round will begin Oct. 19 at 7:30 a.m. PST at Stanford Golf Course in Palo Alto, Calif.
