An even par 288 elevated the Buckeyes six slots, moving from 11th to 5th place with two rounds in the books. The top-8 teams after 54 holes advance to the NCAA Championships.

Freshman Zoe-Beth Brake fired a 2-under 70 in round number two and leads the charge at +1 (145) overall; sharing 10th place on the individual leaderboard. Brake notched three birdies and did no worse than par until a bogey on her 16th hole en route to the second-round 70.

Fellow freshmen Katja Pogacar and Jessica Porvasnik sit at 4- and 5-over, respectively. Both notched 75s on Day One with Pogacar carding 73 and Porvasnik 74 in the second circuit.
