RU fired a 297 as a team in the first round, with Nicole Ewing’s even-par 72 leading the way on the individual end. The Scarlet Knights matched that with a 297 in the second round as well, with Lucrezia Rossettin shooting a 1-under 71 to lead them in round two. 

Overall,  Rossettin leads Rutgers with a 3-over 147 through two rounds, sitting in a tie for 35th on the individual leaderboard. Her second round was highlighted by six birdies, including birdies on three of her final four holes. 


“I got off to a slow start today, but was able to get my putter going in the afternoon,” Rossettin said. “I stayed patient throughout the day and was able to attack some pins. Tomorrow will be a good challenge for us to see what we can do out here.”
