The No. 17 Cal women's golf team entered the Edean Ihlanfeldt Invitational's second round with a five-stroke lead. After Tuesday's effort, that advantage has doubled.
The Bears (23-over) constructed a another consistent round on the Sammamish, Wash., course, leading Stanford by ten strokes entering the 54-hole tournament's final round. The remaining teams trail by at least 14 strokes.
Junior All-American Pia Halbig finished the round at one-over par for the second consecutive day, leaving her in sole possession of the lead of the individual standings.
Halbig, however, is closely followed by sophomore Emily Childs, whose score of 74 brings her to two-over for the tournament. Joanne Lee (five-over) sits tied for fifth for the tournament.
Sophomore Diane Kwon (13-over) and senior Roseanne Niven (18-over) rounded out Cal's scoring.
The Bears enter the tournament's last round as the final group on Wednesday.
