LAKE ELMO, Minn. -- Taylor Neidy fired a second consecutive even-par 72 to take over the individual lead and Central Oklahoma assumed control of the team race at the NCAA Division II Super Regional Three tournament on Monday.

"We had another solid day and put ourselves in a good position," head coach Michael Bond, whose team has won five of 10 tournaments this year, said. "Everybody was pretty steady and we just need to keep it up tomorrow. We can't relax now and have to keep focused on the task at hand."

Neidy's even-par effort led the way in the second round, with the Bronchos also getting a 75 from June Tigert and a 76 from Katie Bensch. Bethany Darrough added a 79 and Aly Seng an 80.

Neidy birdied two of the first four holes to get off to a quick start and made the turn at one-under 35. She got it back to two-under with a birdie at the par-4 10th hole before giving a couple of strokes back on the final six holes.

The Clinton senior is at 144 for the tournament, owning a four-shot lead in the individual race.

Tigert had two birdies and five bogeys in her round, shooting 37-38 for the 75 that has her tied for eighth in the medalist standings with Darrough and Seng at 154.
