ST. GEORGE, Utah — Junior Summer Batiste shot a 155 (80-75) on Monday to tie for 16th place and she led the UTSA women's golf team to a tie for fourth with a 621 (316-305) after 36 holes of the BYU Entrada Classic.

Facing 20 mile-per-hour winds for much of the day, Batiste battled back from a first-round 80 to shoot 75 over the next 18 holes, including a birdie on No. 3 .

Freshmen Taylor Newlin (78-79=157) and Fabiola Arriaga (76-82=158) and sophomore Paola Valerio (82-77=159) all finished one shot behind the one another to tie for 23rd, 29th and 32nd, respectively. Valerio's second-round score included an ace on the par-three, 165-yard eighth hole. Meanwhile, junior Shannon Jungman recorded the team's lowest score of the day with a 74 in the second round and she is tied for 44th place following an opening-day 162.

The Roadrunners sit just six strokes behind Wisconsin, which sits atop the team leaderboard with a 615 (313-302). New Mexico State's Demi Mak leads the field with a 148 (74-74).

UTSA will be in search of its third consecutive top-five finish when the final round tees off on Tuesday morning.
