On Monday (April 8), freshman Catherine Peters (Clarence, N.Y./Clarence) shot U-M's best opening-round score, a two-over 74, which included five birdies. She improved in round two, carding an even-par 72, which sophomore teammate Linda Luo (Bradenton, Fla./Lakewood Ranch) matched after shooting 76 in round one. Peters had 14 pars over the second 18 to go along with two birdies and two bogeys, while Luo evened out three bogeys with a trio of birdies. Meanwhile, sophomore Lauren Grogan (Columbus, Ohio/Bishop Watterson) shot two over on her second 18 after opening with a 77. Behind those performances, U-M went into the final day in a tie for 10th.
