Rapid City, S.D. - Freshman Greta Lange fired a three-over 75 as Shorter College ended round two of the 2010 NAIA Women's Golf National Championship in 15th-place.

The Lady Hawks, ranked 20th in the final NAIA Top 25 Coaches Poll, are +88 after 36 holes. Five-time NAIA champion Oklahoma City University is in the lead after two rounds standing at +34, two shots ahead of British Columbia and 15 strokes better than third-place California Baptist University (+49).

Lange is enjoying a solid tournament thus far.

Individually, the first-year player out of Germany stands in eighth-place at eight-over par, just five strokes back of tournament leader Maegan Rice of the University of Mobile (+3). Lange is just three shots out of second place.

If Lange is able to make a push in the final two rounds, she could join her men's counterpart, Arvid Bengtsson, as a top-five finisher in the national tournament this season.

Catalina Olarte is the Lady Hawks' next best competitor at the moment. Olarte, another freshman, currently sits in a tie for 55th place in the 128-player field at +20.

Petra Muller and Ahmereen Humayun are currently in 81st and 93rd-place, respectively.

Shorter's tee time in Thursday's third round has yet to be determined.
