KU’s Grace Thiry is in second place individually, and Katy Nugent is tied for fourth.

Nugent’s second-round 69 was the second-lowest one-round total by a Jayhawk at the Marilynn Smith Sunflower Invitational. Only Amanda Costner’s 67 in 2005 was better.

After the first round, KU was tied for fifth, but a second-round 290 led to the Jayhawks leapfrogging Nebraska and taking first.

The 290 was the second-best one-round score in KU team history. The 2007 team posted a 286 at the Mountain View Collegiate in 2007.

The final round of the Marilynn Smith Invitational will begin at 8:30 a.m. today at Alvamar.
