Central College set an Iowa Conference and school women’s golf record Saturday, firing a sizzling 305 and climbed within two shots of the lead at the midpoint of the league tournament. Central’s Sarah Paulson, bidding to defend her title, broke the league and school 36-hole scoring record, carding a 145 on the par-72 Pheasant Ridge Golf Course and leads by three shots over Wartburg’s Ellen Rickert. Defending team champ Wartburg hung on to the lead at 625 but Central whittled nine shots off its 11-stroke first-round deficit and stands just two strokes back at 627 which is 30 strokes ahead of third place Simpson. Freshman Kaurie Kincaid of Knoxville is toed for 10th with a 163. The final 36 holes will be played next Friday and Saturday at the par-72 Oneota Golf and Country Club in Decorah.
