    KAPALUA, Hawai’i—The University of Colorado women’s golf team shot an identical team score in the second round of the 2013 Anuenue Spring Break Challenge and slipped from ninth to 13th place with one round remaining here at the Bay Course on Maui.

    No. 10 Washington leads the way as the Pac-12 is well represented in the tournament’s top five. The Huskies shot a 2-under par 286 and are the only team under par through two rounds at 3-under par 573. No. 11 UCLA is second at 2-over par 578 followed by No. 31 Pepperdine in third at 5-over par 581. No. 17 Arizona State sits fourth at 6-over par 582 as the four teams in contention, followed by Denver in fifth place at 15-over par 591.

    “It was a good and bad day. It’s a learning process for this young team,” CU coach Anne Kelly said of her team that includes four true freshmen. “Things have been getting better all semester, although the scores may not reflect that. They’re learning. Here in Hawaii, these are conditions that none of the freshmen have seen before. It’s a year of learning and we’re making progress. We have to continue that and finish on a strong note.”

    Freshman Jamie Oleksiew led the way for the Buffaloes in the second round, shooting even par 72 in the round and is currently tied for 25th at 3-over par 147. She had a rough start to her round with a double bogey and bogey in her first two holes to immediately go 3-over par, but she settled down quickly with two birdies in the next four holes to bring it back to 1-over par. She got back to even par with two birdies and a bogey in her final seven holes to close out her round.

    “Jamie played well, she had a few rough holes right at the beginning, but then got things going,” Kelly said. “She played very solid today. She’s been working hard on her weaknesses and it has paid off, she’s been showing a lot of improvement.”

    Freshman Alexis Keating, who was fourth after the first round, shot a 4-over par 76 and is currently 1-over par 145 through 36 holes and is tied for 11th. She had one birdie and five bogeys to go with 12 pars.

    “It’s hard at any level of golf to shoot a career round and then come back the next day,” Kelly said. “It’s a good experience for her to go through, hopefully she can get it going a little again tomorrow. She just didn’t make as many putts as yesterday.”

    Freshman Allie Zech shot a second round 3-over par 75 and at 10-over par 154, she is in 52nd place. She was 1-over through nine holes after completing the back nine of the course and then birdied No. 1 after making the turn to come back to even par. She had three bogeys in a six hole stretch closing out her round.

    “Allie played pretty decent,” Kelly said. “I think she is close to breaking through and shooting close to par, she just needs to get used to being in that position, and today was a step in the right direction for her.”

    Junior Jenny Coleman matched her first round score of 6-over par 78 and she is tied for 64th at 12-over par 156. Outside of a three-hole stretch where she was 4-over par, she shot the rest of the round at 2-over par, which also came back-to-back on her back nine.

    Freshman Megan Haase shot a second round 6-over par 78, three strokes better than her first round, and she is tied for 82nd at 13-over par 159. After opening her round on No. 11 with a pair of pars, she had three straight bogeys to go to 3-over, but then responded with a birdie before making the turn to the course’s front nine, where she had a rough patch of 5-over par in a span of four holes before rebounding to shoot 1-under over her final six holes of the round.

    Denver’s Tonje Daffinrud moved all the way from 10th place into the lead on the strength of a 65 in the second round and she is at 7-under par through 36 holes. She has a one-stroke advantage over Pepperdine’s Grace Na, who is at 6-under par while Arizona State’s Noemi Jiminez and Washington’s Charlotte Thomas are tied for third at 3-under par. San Jose State’s Regan De Guzman rounds out the top five at 2-under par.

    Final round action will get underway Wednesday at 7:45 a.m. local Hawaiian time in a shotgun format with the Buffs teeing off on holes 12-14. The Buffs will then close out the regular season with a trip to Tempe, Ariz., for the ASU Invitational, set for April 12-14 at the Karsten Golf Club. The Pac-12 Championships then take place April 22-24 in Valencia, Calif., hosted by UCLA.
