NORMAN, Okla. - Wake Forest sophomore Marissa Dodd fired a 1-under 71 on Friday to lead the Demon Deacons to a round of 301 at the NCAA Central Regional.

The Deacons are 24-over par through two rounds and have moved from 17th place to start the day into 14th. The top-8 teams at the end of Saturday's round will advance to the NCAA Championship. There is currently a three-way tie for sixth place at 15-over par. The Deacons trail that group by nine shots heading into Saturday.

"It's been a little bit of a frustrating two days," said Wake Forest head coach Dianne Dailey. "The students are hitting the ball pretty well but we're just not making many putts. And then when we get a bit off line, it balloons into a big number. The good thing about tomorrow is we'll know exactly what we need to do when we start. I think we're capable of going low so we'll see if we can put it together tomorrow and see what happens."

Dodd had a tough opening round of 78 on Thursday but bounced-back with three birdies and just two bogeys in a round of 1-under 71. She is 5-over through two rounds and in a tie for 39th. This was her third round of 71 on the year which ties her career-low.

After opening with an even-par 72, junior Olafia Kristinsdottir came back with a 2-over 74 on Friday and is in a tie for 16th through 36-holes. She made a double-bogey on her third hole of the day but answered with back-to-back birdies on the next two holes.

Senior Greta Lange carded a round of 4-over 76 on Friday. She was 3-over through 16 holes before making a double-bogey on the par-5 8th. But the Germany native finished with a strong birdie at No. 9 to post her second-lowest round of the spring.

Freshman Mariana Sims had three double bogeys in her round of 8-over 80 on Friday. Sophomore Allison Emrey rounded-out the Deacon five with a round of 82.

Host Oklahoma fired a second-straight under-par round and leads the team race at 7-under par. ACC Champion Duke is 1-under through 36 holes while Florida is third at 13-over.

Wake Forest will be in the afternoon wave on Saturday and is paired with Iowa State and SMU . That group will start at 1 p.m. ET off the 10th tee. will have live scoring of the final round.
