The University of Idaho women's golf team is tied for fifth with one round to play at the annual Anteater Invitational.

The Vandals rebounded from a sub-par opening round with a 13-stroke improvement in their second.

"It was great to see the team rebound from a poor opening round," coach Lisa Johnson said. "We putted significantly better and capitalized on our birdies more often.

"During the first round, we had way too many three puts. We played well from tee to green so I was confident that our second round would be better."

The Vandals are at 611 - 15 back of first-day leader Washington State at 596 but just one behind fourth-place UC Irvine and four back of third-place Cal State-Fullerton.

Senior Kayla Mortellaro led the Vandals with a seven-over 149 (tied for 10th) but just four back of 36-hole leader Lindsay Harmon of Washington State. Also for the Vandals, Rachel Choi is tied for 21st at 153 with Kaitlyn Oster one stroke back at 154 and tied for 23. Leilani Kim is tied for 31st at 156 and Teo Poplawski is tied for 65th at 166.

The tournament concludes Tuesday.
