    The TCU women’s golf team has completed two rounds of action at the Lady Puerto Rico Classic in Rio Grande, Puerto Rico.

    Junior Rachel Raastad’s 74 led No. 30 TCU into a tie with Florida State for fourth place out of 18 teams after Sunday’s opening round.

    The Horned Frogs’ 303 was 17 strokes behind leader and top-ranked Alabama. With a 2-under-par 286, the Crimson Tide had a 14-shot advantage over No. 5 Purdue and No. 25 Iowa State.

    Raastad had two birdies and was tied for 13th individually after round one Sunday.

    Senior Melissa Loh and freshman Sanna Nuutinen carded 75s for TCU and were tied for 16th. Loh’s team-best three birdies came in a six-hole stretch.

    Alabama’s Camilla Lennarth shot a 2-under 70 and sits atop the leaderboard by one stroke over three players. Raastad is four shots back.

    On Monday, the TCU women shot a 311 as a team, dropping them to a tie for 8th overall with a 614 total score.

    Melissa Loh was the only TCU golfer to improve on her score from Monday, shooting a team-low 74.
