ST. GEORGE, Utah -- Wisconsin appears ready to defend its title securing the 36-hole lead with a 43-over 297-322-619 at the par 72, 6,015-yard Entrada course at Snow Canyon Country Club in St. George, Utah.

The Badgers won the event for the second time in 2013 with a 24-over par 296-293-299--888.

Wisconsin battled high winds, particularly in the second round. Badger coach Todd Oehrlein said of the conditions, "A front moved in around 2:00. The rest of the day we had winds between 25-30 (mph) gusting to 40+. The golf course is very tight with lava rocks, hazards, etc., so it is really difficult to avoid big numbers."

UW was led by senior Alexis Nelson who is the 36-hole medalist with a 1-over par 71-74--145. Nelson had six birdies in the first round enroute to her 1-under 71.

Freshman Brooke Ferrell and junior Aaren Ziegler tied at 14th at 15-over par 159. And senior Kris Yoo and redshirt junior Kimberly Dinh are a stroke back at 16-over par 160.

Dinh earned her first career individual title at last year's event with an even-par 72-70-74--216.

Play concludes tomorrow with 18 holes in a shot gun start at 9:30 a.m. CT. Follow live scoring at golfstat.com.
