November 2, 1998

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. - After finishing the first day of competition just eight strokes off the pace, the Purdue Boilermakers struggled at the Memphis Women's Intercollegiate Golf Tournament shooting a 318. The Boilers shot a 302 on Sunday on the very demanding and lengthy Windyke Country Club Course to stand in second place. That effort on Monday puts them in sixth place, 16 shots behind the leader after the second round of competition hosted by Memphis University. Angela Blythe continues to play well, as the senior is in fourth place, three strokes behind the leader, Natalie Tucker of Memphis. Blythe shot a 78 on Monday to put her at 150 (+6) for the tournament.

The 15-team field is led by the University of Alabama, who stand at 604 (+28) for the tournament.
