Duke grabs lead after Round 2 of ACC championship

  Celine Boutier led the Blue Devil charge by carding a two-under 69 in the second round.

GREENSBORO, N.C. -- On a day in which it saw four of its golfers move into the top seven of the individual leaderboard, No. 3 Duke will head into the final round of the 2014 ACC Women’s Golf Championship at Sedgefield Country Club in first place and in search of the program’s 19th ACC title.

Celine Boutier, who fired an even-par 71 on Thursday afternoon, led the Blue Devil charge by carding a two-under 69 in the second round. Boutier’s round -- the low number of the day -- was also enough to move her atop the individual leaderboard, as she holds a three-stroke lead on Florida State’s Matilda Castren.

Boutier, a sophomore from Montrouge, France, had five birdies, one bogey and a double bogey on the day. Through two rounds, Boutier is tied for the lead amongst all players in scoring on par-five holes, as she has played the course’s six par-five holes at a total of three-under par over the first two rounds.

Along with Boutier, Duke’s Yu Liu (fifth), Sandy Choi (sixth) and Laetitia Beck (seventh) each registered scores that placed amongst the 10 top rounds of Friday.

In addition to Boutier’s under-par round, Boston College’s Cristina McQuiston carded a one-under 70, becoming just the third golfer to notch a round of 1-under or better during this year’s championship.

With Duke in the lead, Thursday’s co-leader, Virginia, sits in second place. North Carolina is in third followed by Miami (Fla.), NC State, Florida State and Notre Dame. Rounding out the field is Maryland, Clemson, Wake Forest and Boston College.

The third and final round of the 2014 ACC Women’s Golf Championship is scheduled to start at 8:30 a.m ET Saturday.
