CARLSBAD, Calif. — After 54 holes of stroke play, the field of 30 teams at the NCAA Women’s Golf Championship at Omni La Costa Resort & Spa’s North Course is now 15 after Sunday evening’s cut.

Texas A&M held on to the lead and will be out front by a shot over top-ranked Stanford heading into the final round. LSU is the only other team under par through 54 holes, with the Tigers sitting at 1 under.

Texas A&M junior Adela Cernousek is running away from the field, leading by seven shots heading into the final round. She sits at 12 under, in front of Arkansas freshman Maria Jose Marin.
