LINCOLN, Neb. -- Kyla Clancy and Katy Peterson shot 5-over par 77s on Wednesday, but Rocky Mountain College remained 19th in the team standings after Day 2 of the NAIA women's golf championships at Wilderness Ridge.

The 15th-ranked Battlin' Bears shot a 333 and are sitting at 665 after 36 holes. Top-ranked SCAD of Savannah, Ga., is leading the 27-team field at 608 by three strokes over defending champion Oklahoma City with two rounds to go.

Individually, Clancy is tied for 12th at 153 (76-77) and Peterson is tied for 50th at 162 (85-77). Clancy is just seven strokes behind leader Daniela Martinez of Northwood University of Texas.

Rocky's McKenzie Webinger shot an 88 on Wednesday and is at 175. She is followed by teammates Margo Salsbery (94-178) and Allie Sauvageau (91-180).

After Thursday's third round, the field of teams will be cut to the top 17 and ties for Friday's closing 18 holes.

Rocky is sitting two strokes out of 16th, where Frontier Conference rival Lewis-Clark State is tied with two other teams at 663.

"I feel very confident that we will make the cut tomorrow," Battlin' Bears coach Aaron Pohle said. 

Rocky has a morning tee time on Thursday.
