DALLAS, Texas (UNLVRebels.com) - UNLV Women's Golf was back out on the course for the second time in a week's span, this time competing at the Trinity Forest Invitational hosted by Southern Methodist University in Dallas. Monday featured the first two rounds at Trinity Forest Golf Club and saw the Rebels card a 40-over 616 as a team to sit in 12th after day one.
UNLV shot a 24-over 312 in round one then improved in round two with a 16-over 304. Freshman Polly Mack was the Scarlet & Gray's top finisher, carding a 36-hole score of 8-over (152) for a tie for 31st. Sophomore Nastasia Kossacky was just one shot behind Mack at 9-over while junior Elizabeth Prior - who is coming off her second career win - is a shot back from Kossacky at 10-over.
Houston grabbed the lead on Monday at 10-over 586 and heads into Tuesday's final round with a five-shot lead over second-place Kansas State (15-over 591).
