NORMAN, Okla. – The LSU Lady Tigers will play for a championship Monday as they moved to the lead after a strong second round in the Schooner Fall Classic here Sunday afternoon at the par-70 BelMar Golf Course.

LSU golfers are 1-2 in the individual standings as well after 36 holes as freshman Caroline Nistrup put together one of the best aggregate rounds in school history (65) and junior Madelene Sagstrom birdied two holes late to post her second consecutive even par 70 on a cool, windy afternoon.

Nistrup, from Denmark, had six birdies and just one bogey to post nines of 33 and 32 to post the 65, just the third LSU women’s golfer in 35 years to post a numerical total of 65 or less in a round. Megan McChrystal in 2010 posted both a 64 and 65, while in 2001, Katy Harris posted a 65. All three were shot on par 72 courses. Nistrup’s 5-under total ties her for eighth all-time at LSU as far as under par single round goes.

Her leading total of 138 ties the second best aggregate total for 36 holes for an LSU women’s golfer (73-65).

Sagstrom at 140, is tied with Jayde Panos of Oklahoma State who followed an opening 67 with a 3-over 73 to stand at even par with the member of the 2013 All-SEC team for her strong performance which she is continuing this season

For the day, LSU posted an 11-over round of 291, four shots better than Saturday’s opening round to move from third to first entering Monday’s final 18 holes. LSU has posted 295-291 for a two-day total of 586, two shots ahead of Arizona State at 588 (239-295) and one more back to Oklahoma State (293-296). Host Oklahoma State got itself back into the tournament, moving to fourth at 593.

The Lady Tigers also on the second day, counted a 77 from senior Ali Lucas and a 79 from sophomore Nadine Dreher for the counting totals as LSU is in the middle of six rounds in nine days, playing next weekend at the Lady Tar Heel in Chapel Hill, N.C.

“I’m so very proud that they worked hard and just fought for every shot in the round,” said LSU Coach Karen Bahnsen. The wind was blowing so hard. The conditions were changing throughout the round. Caroline’s score was very strong, especially in this wind.”
