With four players listed in the top five of the leaderboard, defending champion UC Davis increased its lead by 12 strokes after day two of the 2015 Big West Women’s Golf Championship at the El Macero Country Club.

In the second round of play the Aggies bested their first-round score by seven strokes to sit seven-under with a 569 point total.  Hawai’i carded a two-round total of 581 to sit second and is followed by UC Riverside (600).  Long Beach State shot 301 on day two for a two-round total of 605, securing the fourth spot, and Cal Poly dropped to fifth after firing 315 on day two for a total of 608.  Cal State Fullerton posted the third-lowest score of the day, 299, which moved them to sixth place with UC Irvine (614) and CSUN (622) rounding out the  eight-team field.

While the Aggies have distanced themselves from the rest of the pack for the team title, the individual medalist honor remains a heated battle with  five strokes separating first through fifth.
