Notre Dame was led on the day by the strong play of junior Talia Campbell (Dallas, Texas/Ursuline Academy) as she shot a one-under-par 71 after registering a six-over-par 78 on Friday for a two-day 149 total. Campbell, who stands 10th overall on the leaderboard, played steady throughout the day as she finished with two birdies, a bogey and 15 pars.

Sophomore Jordan Ferreira (University Place, Wash./Bellarmine Prep) leads the Irish following two rounds with a 36-hole total of 148 as she resides in a four-way tie for fifth among the 96 competitors in the event.
