LAHAINA, Hawaii — UC Davis sophomore Blair Lewis got better as the round went on Tuesday, notching three birdies in the final 14 holes to finish at 1-under 71 on the second day of the Anuenue Spring Break Golf Classic at Kapalua Resort’s Bay Course on Maui.

Teammate Beverly Vatananugulkit, another sophomore, shot a 74 to remain among the leaders (11th place at 1-over) as the 13th-ranked Aggies were in ninth place heading into Wednesday’s final round.

Lewis’ impressive round jumped her 29 spots on the leaderboard into a tie for 33rd place at 5-over 149. It also helped UCD cut five strokes from its opening-day score, shooting an 8-over 296.

In addition, Aggie senior Demi Runas shot 75 and was tied for 42nd at 7-over, fellow senior Amy Simanton was tied for 49th at 9-over after carding a 77 and junior Jessica Chulya improved five strokes from Day 1 to post a 76. She was tied for 72nd at 13-over.

No. 10 Washington moved into the team lead after shooting 2-under 286 on Tuesday. The Huskies lead No. 11 UCLA by five shots.

Starting on the 10th hole, Lewis enjoyed a strong effort on Tuesday, even after two bogeys over her first four holes put her 2-over. She turned the tide with a birdie on the par-5 15th hole and then matched that with a birdie on the par-5 first. A string of pars set her up for another birdie, this time on the par-4 seventh hole, helping her play the course’s front nine at 2-under. The outing was a seven-shot improvement from Monday.

Vatananugulkit, who shot 71 on Monday, bogeyed four of her first five holes but then played her last 13 holes at 1-under with 12 pars and a birdie. Runas had three birdies in her round of 76, while Chuyla had 12 pars and a birdie during hers. Simanton had a birdie on each side of the 6,036-yard course in her round of 77.

Denver’s Tonje Daffinrud shot a 7-under 65 on Tuesday and holds a one-shot lead at 7-under 137.

Wednesday’s final round begins at 9:45 a.m. The Aggies will play with Portland State, Fresno State and Tulsa.
