WICHITA FALLS, TX (KAUZ) -

Paced by the play of senior leader Sierra Campbell, Midwestern State charged back to tie for ninth Tuesday afternoon at the MSU Invitational played at the par-72, 5,926-yard course at the Wichita Falls Country Club.

The Mustangs improved 33 strokes from opening day to charge ahead eight spots on the team leader board marking the second-best total in the second round with a 22-over 310.

It wasn't enough to catch Dallas Baptist, which set a team scoring record for the MSU Invitational, marking scores of 310 and 303 for a 37-over 613. The total is two strokes better than its mark last year when the Patriots tied with MSU and Arkansas Tech at 615.

Campbell bounced back from a nightmare score of 90 in the first round to notch a team-best, 2-over 74 in the final round. The opening round marked only score of 78 this season and stands as the Rio Rancho, N.M. native's only non-countable team tally this season.

Campbell carded a team-best two birdies on her way to a 42nd-place finish with a two-round total of 154 (+20).

Freshman Cheleen Cousins marked a clean card over her final nine holes stringing together eight consecutive pars before closing with her lone birdie of the day. The Frisco Liberty High product logged a 78 to finish with a total of 166 (+22) to tie for 59th.

Junior Sarah Moore and senior Hayley Dambold pitched in MSU's final two team countable scores with matching 5-over 79s.

Moore was the top finishing player for the Mustangs tying for 33rd with a two-round total of 163 (+19).

Dambold matched Campbell with two birdies -- consecutive on Hole Nos. 12 and 13 -- to tie for 59th with a total of 166, while freshman Alexis Read tied for 46th marking rounds of 84 and 81 for a 21-over total of 165.

Sophomore May Chimsuti (89-82 171/74th-tied) and senior Madison Smith (90-86 176/89th-tied) competed as individual medalists.

Rogers State's Mica Eastin claimed top individual medalist honors firing consecutive rounds of 75 for a 6-over total of 150. She was joined on the all-tournament team by Dallas Baptist's Addison Mitchell and Ann Parmenter, St. Mary's Regina Gonzalez and Tarleton State's Lydia Traylor.

Midwestern State competes in the Monterey Bay Otter Invitational next week at the Bayonet Golf Course in Seaside, Calif.
