SAN ANTONIO, Texas -- TCU’s Emmy Martin carded a 7-under-par 65, one stroke shy of a school record, to lead the Horned Frogs into a second-place standing after Monday's second round of the Maryb S. Kauth Invitational.

TOP STORY
Martin's 65 tied Brooke Beeler for the second-best round in TCU history, one shot behind Sanna Nuutinen's 64 at the 2013 Alamo Invitational, the previous name for the Maryb S. Kauth Invitational.

Martin totaled eight birdies and recorded par on nine holes. The senior from Odessa, Fla., birdied five of her opening eight holes, including three in a row in one stretch.

Martin, an All-Big 12 selection last season, is tied for the individual lead with Kansas State's Connie Jaffrey at 7-under 137.

THE TEAM
TCU's 6-under 282 marked the third-best round in program history, trailing by one the 281 at last year's Maryb S. Kauth Invitational and the 2010 Alamo Invitational.

The Horned Frogs are behind only Arkansas in the team standings.

THE HORNED FROGS
Annika Clark had four birdies en route to a 2-under 70. The junior from Highlands, Texas, is in 15th place with a 1-over 143.

Brooke McDougald shot par with a 72. She had four birdies, including three of her opening five holes on the back nine.

Greta Bruner and Grace Do contributed 75s for TCU. Do had three birdies, while Bruner had one.

Yeji Shin, competing as an individual, had two birdies in posting a 77.
