The Chippewas finished just two shots out of ninth place after finishing 38 out at last year’s MAC Championship. In 2015, CMU was 53 strokes out of ninth.
CMU's Natalie Johnson, who started the day 23rd after an opening-round 79, is among a group tied for 29th with a 15-over par 159 total.
Central Michigan's Natalie Johnson, a junior, and Danielle Sawyer, a freshman, are among a group tied for 23rd in the 49-player field.
And while contending for the title may be a stretch at this point for the still-young CMU program, it’s certainly well within reason that the Chippewas can improve, both in score and in standing, over their performances in the last two MAC Championships.
