STANFORD, Calif. — Saint Mary’s jumped six spots in the standings to finish the second round of The Goodwin in ninth place out of 24 teams. The Gaels shot a 290 combined score on Friday, an eight stroke improvement over Thursday’s performance.

Connor Blick led Gaels with a 1-over 71 middle round. Blick recorded three birdies on the afternoon, two of which came on par-5’s. Perry Cohen and Roman Aragon followed close behind Blick, each with scores of 2-over 72.

Cohen’s round was highlighted by an eagle on the 7th hole while Aragon would’ve posted one of the best scores of the afternoon had it not been for a triple-bogey on the 13th hole. Aragon’s score improved by six strokes from the day before and represented the greatest improvement of any Gael.

Pavan Sagoo shot a 75 and Eduardo Carrete rounded out the Gaels with a 78.

No. 12 Stanford leads all teams with a combined score of 564 after two rounds of play while No. 1 USC trails by just one stroke heading into the final day. No. 15 UNLV, Washington, and No. 5 Oregon round out the top-5 team scores, respectively.

Individually, Rhett Rasmussen from BYU leads all golfers with a combined score of 4-under 136.

The third and final day of The Goodwin takes place tomorrow. Results and recaps can be found on following the conclusion of the tournament.
