HUMBLE, Texas – Baylor women’s golf shattered its school-record with a first-round score of 23-under-par 265, and the Bears padded their lead with a 5-under-par 283 in the second round Monday at the Lone Star Invitational at Golf Club of Houston.

No. 14 Baylor (-28) built a 21-shot lead after shooting 265 in the first round, which was eight strokes better than the previous school-record team score, and the Bears extended the lead to 26 scores at the end of the day. BU leads SMU (-2), Texas State (E), BYU (+12), Kansas (+17) and Tulane (+23).

All six Baylor golfers are among the top-10 individually in the 39-player field. Hannah Karg leads the Bears and is in second place overall with a 36-hole total of 8-under-par 136. She tied the school record with a first-round 7-under 65, firing eight birdies, including each of her last two holes, and she carded 1-under 71 in the afternoon. She’s three shots back of the individual lead heading to Tuesday’s final round.

Britta Snyder is tied for fourth place at 4-under 140 after matching rounds of 2-under 70. Gurleen Kaur is in seventh place at 3-under 141 following rounds of 6-under 66 and 3-over 75. Elodie Chapelet, Rosie Belsham and Nina Lang are all tied for eighth place at 2-under 142. Chapelet and Belsham both shot 5-under 67 in the first round and 3-over 75 in the second, while Lang reversed those scores with a 5-under 67 in the afternoon following a 3-over 75 in the morning.
