Follow BeaversWGolf on Twitter

KAPALUA, Hawai'i. For the second straight day Seshia Telles led the Oregon State women's golf team at the Anuenue Spring Break Classic, which helped the Beavers knock four strokes off their opening round score and move into eighth place on Tuesday.

Telles shot a 2-over 74 in the second round after opening with a 1-under 71 at the par-72, 6,022-yard Kapalua Bay Course, putting her in sixth place in the 88-player field with a 1-over 145.

As a team, Oregon State shot a 15-over 303 in the second round to move into eight place in the 15-team field with a 34-over 307-303--610. The three-day, 54-hole tournament concludes on Wednesday with a shotgun start at 7:45 a.m. HT (10:45 a.m. PT). Live scoring is available at golfstat.com.

“Today was better overall for our team,” Oregon State head coach Risë Alexander said. “Unfortunately, we had to finish on two of the most exposed holes on the ocean and the wind won the battle. We will continue to work on those types of shots to eliminate some of the variability of playing in 20 mile-per-hour winds.

“I continue to be pleased with the progress this team is making with their mental toughness. Patience and persistence are the keys in these conditions, and they are learning so much from this experience. Tomorrow we will experience the same conditions and continue to improve and learn. Chipping and putting better will definitely improve our ability to score.”
