PALO ALTO, Calif. (seminoles.com) - Seminole senior Jessica Negron shot an even par 71 in the second round and is in a tie for eighth place in the individual standings and the Florida State women's golf team is in a tie for 19th place in the team standings with one round remaining to be played in the NCAA West Regional Championship at the Stanford University Golf Course. Negron enters the final round playing for her second career top 10 regional championship finish; she finished in a tie for third place in the individual standing at the NCAA East Regional Championship in 2011.

Negron is looking to earn an individual spot in the NCAA Championship Finals as one of the top two players not on one of the top eight teams that qualify to play in the championship. The top eight teams and the top two individual players not on one of the qualifying teams in each of the three NCAA regional championships will play in the NCAA Championship Finals at the University of Georgia May 21-24. Negron is only five strokes out of the individual lead.

No. 7 Vanderbilt and No. 12 Purdue are tied for first in the team standings with identical scores of 577. The Commodores and Boilermakers are two strokes ahead of South California. Annie Park of Southern California has carded a two day total of 138 and holds a one shot lead over Cassy Isagawa of Oregon in the race for the regional individual championship.

Negron (Ocala, Fla.) finished with her even par score of 71 in the second round after carding a 72 in the first round. Her 36-hole score of 143 is only one stroke off of her career best score for the first two rounds of tournament (142) which she has achieved three times in in her career - most recently at the Florida State Match-Up Tournament in February of 2013.

Negron bean the round with a birdie on the par five hole No. 1 and was on point during the remainder of the round. She carded scores of par or better on 15 of her 18 holes with three birdies. She was never more than one stroke over par and was at or below par following 13 of her 18 holes. Negron has now carded a team - leading five birdies in the first two rounds of the regional championship.

Negron's 36-hole total of 143 is tied for third best 36-hole total in Florida State's history in an NCAA regional championship. She carded a 142 in the first two rounds of the 2011 NCAA East Regional Championship during which she finished in a tie for third place in the individual standings. The school record for a 36-hole score is 138 (69-69) by four-time All-American Caroline Westrup during the 2077 NCAA East Regional Championship.

Sophomore Laure Castelain (Bordeaux, France) carded a 3 over par score of 74 and has a two day total of 152 and is in a tie for 64th place in the individual standings. She bettered her score of 78 from Thursday's first round by four strokes as she carded 15 rounds of par golf. Castelain carded nearly twice as many holes at par or better (15) in the second round as compared to the first round (eight) and finished with four stroke improvement despite not carding a single birdie. She carded three birdies but scored eight rounds above par in the first round.

"We battled the course today but I saw a ton of positives from each of our girls," said head coach Amy Bond. "The main thing is that we are all learning and that's a great thing for all of our players - for Jess as she continues her career and for the younger players as they realize the hard work they have dedicated to this season has really paid off. I am pleased with how each girl is continuing to work her way around the course."

Florida State tees off in the final round a 12:55 PST and will play with Harvard and Miami.
