The Arkansas State women's golf team remained in eighth place at the LeTriomphe Invitational on Monday, shooting a second-round 316 at the LeTriomphe Golf and Country Club to push its two-day total to 627.

Abi Laker made the biggest jump in the standings for the Red Wolves, climbing from tied for 54th place to tied for 38th after turning in a 78.  One day after recording an 83, Marie Couffignal shot an 80 to improve from tied for 67th place to tied for 53rd.  Courtney Manning posted an 85 to run her two-day score to 167, which puts her in a tie for 68th place.

Also competing for Arkansas State, Clara Tefteller cut six strokes off her first-round score with an 82 to move her from tied for 84th place to tied for 78th.
