ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – Nadine White and Desiree Andersson are tied for 20th individually and Campbell is tied for 10th on the team leader board through 36 holes of the NCAA Women's Golf Albuquerque Regional Championship.

Top-ranked Stanford leads the 18-team field at three-under-par 573 (290-283), four strokes ahead of No.-36 Pepperdine (287-90—577). No.-6 Southern California is third (295-285—580) with No.-9 Duke fourth (297-288—585). No.-26 California is fifth (295-291—586), one stroke ahead of No.-40 Washington (295-292—587). 

No.-17 Oklahoma State (304-286—590) is seventh, followed by No.-16 Miami (303-288—591) and 32nd-ranked Illinois (306-287—593).  Ranked 48th in the nation and seeded 12th in the event, Campbell (297-298—595) is tied with No.-24 NC State (301-294—595) entering Wednesday's final round.

The top six teams (and top three individuals from non-qualifying teams) from each of four regional sites will advance to the NCAA Championship May 19-24 in Sugar Grove, Ill.

"I saw a lot of effort out there today," said Campbell head coach John Crooks. "The wind direction moved two or three times. When we made the turn at 10 and 11, we really didn't adjust well. The wind turned, but our strategy didn't. Those two holes decided our outcome today."

Campbell was 10-over-par combined on the par-four 10th and par-three 11th layouts. The Camels played the other 16 holes even.

"We are hitting a lot of good shots and are still in position," said Crooks. "If we go out tomorrow and post a good score, then a lot of things could happen."

White matched Monday's round with a second-straight one-over 73 to sit two-over for the tournament. The senior from Brisbane, Australia stood four-over on the day through 11 holes, but bounced back with birdies on the par-four 12th and 13th and on the par-five 18th.

The Big South Conference freshman of the year, Andersson (72-74—146) made two birdies on the back nine, chipping in from the green side bunker on No.-12 and also making two on the par-three 16th.

Junior Ayelen Irizar (77-75—152) finished birdie-par-birdie and is tied for 51st place with sophomore Anna Svanka (76-76—152), who ended her round with seven-straight pars.  Junior Annelie Sjoholm, the Big South golfer of the year, is tied for 66th (76-78—154) in the 96-golfer field.

White is tied for third in scoring on the par-four holes (-1) and has six birdies (tied for 12th) and 24 pars on the par-72, 6637-yard UNM Championship Course layout.

Andersson also has six birdies through 36 holes and is tied for sixth in par-four scoring (+1). Svanka has made 25 pars (tied for 12th) and Sjoholm 24 through two rounds.

With winds gusting to 15-20 miles per hour, only six players in the 96-golfer field enter the final round in red numbers.  Albane Valenzuela of top-ranked Stanford (71-69—140), holds a one-shot lead over Julianne Alvarez of Washington (72-69—141) and Martina Edberger of Cal State-Fullerton (73-68—141).

Campbell will be paired with NC State and SMU for Wednesday's final round and start from the 10th tee at 7:30 a.m. Live scoring is available at Golfstat.com.
