Her effort is coming in a loaded 18-team field with nine teams ranked among the nation's top 50, including No. 1 UCLA.

No. 26 Pepperdine edged to a two-stroke lead in the team race with a two-round total of 575 after a 289 on Tuesday. No. 31 UC Davis gained some ground on the Waves with a tournament-best 285 to end the second round at 577.
