    STANFORD, Calif.— University of Colorado junior Jenny Coleman slipped from 15th to 51st here Friday as two rounds are in the books in the 2013 NCAA Women’s Golf Western Regional.

    Competing as an individual, through two rounds, Coleman has a 72-79—151 scorecard on the 6,267-yard, par-71 Stanford Golf Course, with the 9-over par effort tying her for 51st in the 126-woman field. She had one birdie, 10 pars, five bogeys and two double bogeys her second time around the Stanford track, after recording two birdies, 13 pars and three bogeys in her opening round.

    She opened on the back nine and endured a bogey out of the gate, but came right back with four straight pars. She then played the next seven at five-over, bogeying Nos. 15, 2 and 3, with a double on the 175-yard, par-3 17th, the hole that played the second toughest Friday. She left her tee shot short of the green, and then her chip rolled back down; the second attempt went past the hole and she then two-putted for the double.

    After her second double came on the 385-yard, par-4 No. 6, she came right back with a birdie on No. 7 (a 479-yard par-5); she then bogeyed No. 8 and closed the day with a par on No. 9.

    The top eight teams and the top two individuals not on one of those teams will advance to the NCAA Championship Finals, which are set for May 21-14 in Athens, Ga. Coleman is not out of it, as the situation is very fluid; the top two players on teams not in the top eight through two rounds have 1-under par 141 scorecard; Coleman is tied for 24th out of the 86 players in the same situation, though does have her work cut out for her.

    “It wasn’t a great ball-striking day for her,” CU head coach Anne Kelly said. “She’s been hitting the ball well, but today she just couldn’t get it going. She had some trouble around the greens, and nothing seemed to drop or go her way today. What happened on 17 was evidence of that.”

    “She’s has been very consistent and has hit the ball well really the entire spring, she just had an off day today.”

    Southern California’s Annie Park continued to lead the individual board, as she turned in an even-par 71 for a 3-under 138 total through 36 holes; she leads Oregon’s Cassy Isagawa by one shot (69-70—139), with Purdue’s Paula Reto third (71-69—140). Three other players are at 1-under 141 and one player is even, otherwise the other 119 golfers are all over par.

    The average score in the field stands at 76.29, or over 5 strokes higher than par. Coleman has played the eight par-5 holes at 2-under so far, the 18 par-4 holes at 5-over and the 10 par-3s at 6-over.

    The third and final round is scheduled for Saturday; Coleman will tee off at 9:25 a.m. MDT on No. 10. The top 12 teams play in the morning wave so she’ll likely know where she stands before the afternoon wave hits the course.

    “I’m sure she’ll go out and give it all tomorrow,” Kelly said. “Knowing Jenny, she’s a pretty tough competitor, so she’ll go out there and fire away. She’s more than capable of shooting 66, and that definitely could make things interesting, as we thought somewhere around even par would be needed to advance. She won’t give up, that’s for sure.”

    No. 7 Vanderbilt and No. 12 Purdue are tied for the team lead with 9-over 577 totals; No. 1 USC is two back (579), with No. 4 South Carolina (581) and No. 14 Stanford (585) rounding out the top five.
