Leftinger was not the only one with a strong day, as the Panthers shot a team total 619 (314-305) to take sole possession of second place heading to the final round of the tournament.

Their 305 in round two tied the program’s lowest score for a single round and its low round versus par records.

FIT senior Jessica Hook provided the team’s low total on the day, shooting a seven-over-par 151 (77-74) to sit in a tie for fifth with 18 holes to play. Sophomore Rachel Polson and Leftinger shot the same total in each round to complete the day at an eight-over 152 (77-75).

Sophomore Jara’ Templet added a 168 (87-81) to round out the Panthers scoring.

Florida Southern leads the field after a two-round total 611 (303-308). The lead is just eight shots ahead of FIT and 10 in front of third place Newberry, who shot 621 (307-314). Flagler’s Olivia Ferrer paces the individual leaderboard after posting a two-over 146 (73-73).

The Panthers will look to make a run at the Moccasins in the final 18 holes on Tuesday.
