HOT SPRINGS VILLAGE, Arkansas - The North Texas women's golf team moved into a tie for third place after two rounds of play (+21) at the Little Rock Women's Golf Challenge from Diamonte Country Club in Hot Springs Village, Arkansas Monday. The Mean Green shot one stroke better as a team on day two and are just four shots off of the lead, which is shared by UTEP and Central Arkansas. A huge day from sophomore Sol Lee saw her shoot a one-under-par 71, bringing her to +2 overall.

"My goal is to be in a position to win going into the final round," head coach Michael Akers said on Monday. "We are only four shots back and in great shape to make a run. Sol hit the ball incredibly well today, but missed many short birdie attempts. Her score certainly helped us and I am glad she is striving to win. I feel good that Eji (Kwon) and Elena (Kim) will bounce back and play well tomorrow."

Lee moved all the way from 17th place into a tie for sixth individually and is just four shots back of co-leaders June Ting (UTEP) and Cynthia Diaz (UMKC) heading into Tuesday's final round.

Khaw shot a stroke better than she did Monday with a two-over-74 during Tuesday's round two, which is now a single-round best for her this fall. She currently sits in a tie for 13th at +5 overall. 

The Mean Green tee off in the final round Tuesday morning beginning at 8:30 a.m. CT. There is no live scoring available for this tournament, but final results will be available on MeanGreenSports.com following Tuesday's final round of action.
