RIVERSIDE, Calif. — Led by freshman Elizabeth Scholtes, the Cal Poly women's golf team will take a six-stroke lead into the second day of play in the Battle at the Rock, held at Oak Quarry Golf Club.
Scholtes (pictured at right) opened the 54-hole tournament with a blistering 68, the only golfer in the 15-team, 87-golfer field, to break 70, and has a one-stroke lead over three other golfers midway through the second round of play Monday.
Frost delayed the start nearly two hours. All the golfers finished between 10 and 14 holes in the second round, now scheduled to be completed Tuesday morning, followed by the final round.
Scholtes is at two under par for the tournament through 12 holes in the second round. Samantha Hui of Wyoming, Alyaa Abdulghany of USC and Yifei Wang of Cal Baptist all share second place at one under par.
As a team, Cal Poly is eight over par for a six-stroke advantage over second-place CSUN and Santa Clara. Grand Canyon is another stroke back in fourth place.
In addition to Scholtes, Caroline Cantlay, Vanessa Wang and Mallory Muehlbauer were in the top 20 when play was suspended.
Cantlay is in a tie for sixth place at one over par. She carded a 72 in the morning round and has finished 11 holes in the second round. Wangis tied for 17th place at four over par following her 75 in the morning. She has six holes to play to complete her second round.
Muehlbauer is tied for 19th place at five over par. She carded a 76 in the opening round and has completed 11 holes in her second round.

Competing as an individual, Tiffany Cha is tied for 79th place with an 83 in the morning and six more holes to play in the second round.
Scholtes leads the field in par-3 scoring at one under par and carded nine birdies, six pars and four bogeys for her four-under-par opening round.
