PONTE VEDRA, Fla. – Rebecca Hnidka holed out in two on a par four and Kennedy Ishee shot a 70 in the second round to highlight the Oral Roberts women's golf action Monday at the 9th Annual Jacksonville Classic.

Daytona State (291-287—578) took a commanding 12 shot lead over the rest of the field while ORU finished the day at 607 (313-294) and is just four shots back of the next team.
