CORPUS CHRISTI — Freshman Fabiola Arriaga shot a 73 on Tuesday to jump to the top spot on the individual leaderboard and her round led UTSA to the same place on the team ledger at the Southland Conference Championship.

The Roadrunners, who have four players in the top 10, posted a second round score of 297, which was 12 strokes better than any other squad. That helped turn a nine-shot deficit to a lead of seven heading into the final round. First-round leader Lamar sits second at 610 (297-313).

Similar to round one, the field faced high winds at Corpus Christi Country Club.

Arriaga started her round with a bogey on the opening hole, but she went out at one-under-par after birdies on Nos. 7 and 8. A pair of bogeys on the back nine brought her to 148 (75-73) for the tournament and sole possession of first place.

Sophomore Paola Valerio sits in fifth with a 151 (75-76) after carding a trio of birdies on the back nine, while junior Shannon Jungman is tied for sixth with a 152 (76-76). Jungman recorded birdies on Nos. 2 and 4 and shot two-over on the front and back nine.

Meanwhile freshman Taylor Newlin, who recovered from a first-round 80 to fire a 72, shares the sixth spot on the leaderboard. The Frisco native carded a team-best four birdies to tie for the low-round of the tournament.

UTSA and the Lady Cardinals will be paired together again on Wednesday beginning at 10 a.m. with the Roadrunners looking the program's first-ever league crown in just its sixth season of competition.
