CORAL SPRINGS, Fla. Ñ UC Davis sophomores Amy Simanton and Demi Runas teamed to shoot a 1-under 71 in best-ball format on Wednesday afternoon and are tied for 23rd at the inaugural Hooters WomenÕs Collegiate Team Championship at Achasta Golf Course.

The tournament, which is being presented by the National Golf Coaches Association, features standout golfers from NCAADivisions I, II and III as well as the NAIA. More than 50 tandems are competing in the tournament, which opened with alternate-shot play on Tuesday and will conclude with aggregate scoring today.

Simanton and Runas are coming off impressive freshman seasons in which they helped UCD capture a Big West championship while helping the Aggies earn a spot in the NCAA Tournament for the second time. Both earned All-Big West Conference honors during their freshman seasons.

The pair is at 3-over 147 after 36 holes and tied with four other teams. Runas had birdies on the par-4 second hole and the par-3 fifth to help her and Simanton make the turn one under. Each player had a bogey on the back nine while both players birdied the par-5 15th.

Brooke Pancake and Jennifer Kirby of Alabama are at 11-under 133 and hold a two-shot lead over two other teams.

Runas and Simanton combined to shoot a 4-over 76 on Tuesday during alternate-shot play and were tied for 20th after the first round.

They started their round four shots over par after three holes but birdied the par-5 15th, their sixth hole to help turn things around. The duo then strung together eight consecutive pars while playing their back nine just one shot over par.

The tournament concludes on Thursday.
