HOWEY-IN-THE-HILLS, Fla. -- Rhodes didn't let unfavorable weather dampen its spirits as it widened its lead to 11 strokes as it leads the NCAA Division III Women's Golf Championship.

Texas-Tyler shot 17-over par in the partial competition, with Ithaca moving closer with a nine-over par. The defending champions, Mary Hardin-Baylor sits in fourth with 20-over par with No. 1-ranked Washington (Mo.) shooting 16-over par to round out the top five.
