    The Southern Illinois women's golf team is the clubhouse leader after nearly two rounds at the Jackrabbit Invitational in Primm, Nev. The Salukis were in fifth after one round but made a strong push in the second round before heading to the clubhouse after 15 holes due to darkness.

    "We're a persistent group, and we showed that in the second round," head coach Alexis Mihelich said. "It wasn't the prettiest first round, but we've always bounced back in the second round and we've done that so far."

    The tournament marks the third time this year that SIU has played two rounds in one day. The first time, SIU bounced back from a score of 317 in the first round, which is the same score as it posted in the first round in Primm, with a 296 in the second round. The second time, Southern posted a 300 in the second round.

    In the first round, Cassie Rushing led the way for the Salukis and was tied for sixth overall with a 76. Amy Lee (79) and Shaina Rennegarbe (80) also were in the top-25 individuals in the field. Ashleigh Rushing (82) and Mattie Lindner (85) rounded out the squad.

    The second round was unable to be completed after frost delayed the start of the tournament. SIU made a strong push in the second round and currently holds a two-stoke lead over the field relative to par. Rushing and Rennegarbe are both currently in the top-10 individually.

    Southern's golfers will finish out their final three holes of the second round and immediately start the third and final round of the tournament tomorrow. Live scoring for the tournament is available HERE.
