by Gary Baines
Mary Weinstein of Regis University dropped back but remained in the top 10 after Thursday’s second round of the Women’s NCAA Division II Finals in Findlay, Ohio.
Weinstein (pictured), winner of two Junior Golf Alliance of Colorado majors and the 5A girls state high school title in 2016, shared the individual lead after round 1, but a 9-over-par 81 on Thursday left her tied for 10th place at the halfway point of the championship. At 10-over 154, she trails leader Ann Parmerter of Dallas Baptist University by eight strokes. No one has matched or broken par through two rounds of the 72-hole event.
Weinstein, the Junior Golf Alliance of Colorado’s female player of the year in 2016, made four birdies on Thursday, but also carded seven bogeys and three double bogeys.
Meanwhile, the other Coloradan competing in the tournament, Alex Trask of William Jewell College in Missouri, likewise struggled on Thursday, shooting an 82 that dropped her from eighth to 25th place. She stands at 157 at the halfway point of the tournament. Trask posted one birdie, four bogeys, two double bogeys and one triple bogey on Thursday.
