KIAWAH ISLAND, S.C. - For the second straight day a member of the UCF women's golf team sits atop the leader board of the Edwin Watts / Kiawah Island Classic as freshman Elisa Aoki (Bradenton, Fla.) fired a 73 (+1) on Monday to hold a two round score of 146 (+2) and top a field of 215 golfers. As a whole, the Knights are in sixth place out of 43 teams competing in the enormous event.

Aoki is following in the footsteps of her teammate Stephanie Connelly (Pasadena, Md.) who was the opening round leader but fell back to fourth place after firing a 77 (+5) in Monday's round to put her at 147 (+3) overall. Aoki and Connelly give the Knights two of the top four golfers in a field of 215, the only school with two so highly ranked.

Overall, UCF's score of 613 (+37) puts the team in sixth place and easily within striking range of first place Miami's 605 (+29) heading into Tuesday morning's third and final round of play at the event hosted by the College of Charleston.

After shooting a 79 on Monday, senior May Tomimbang remains as UCF's third-top golfer with a two round tall of 160 (+16). Victoria Tomko (Lontzen, Belgium) is fourth for the Knights with a two-round 162 while senior Jessy Tang (Miami, Fla.) has posted a 164 thus far on Kiawah Island.
