Alexandra Bonetti shot a 71 while Sanna Nuutinen carded a 72 to help the TCU women’s golf team move into sixth place after the second round of the Big 12 Championship in Rhodes, Iowa.

TCU’s second-round 294 was 32 strokes below Friday’s 326 and the fifth-best team score on the day.

The Frogs trail No. 23 Baylor by 15 strokes. The Bears are at 605, one stroke ahead of No. 28 Iowa State and No. 17 Oklahoma State.

Bonetti and April McCoy are the top TCU players individually. Both are tied for 11th at 153. Nuutinen is tied for 15th with a 154.

Baylor’s Lauren Taylor is the individual leader with a 2-under 142.

TCU sprinter wins

TCU’s Charles Silmon won the 200-meter dash at the Michael Johnson Classic in Waco, and Cameron Parker added a victory in the triple jump Saturday as TCU wrapped up the regular season.

Silmon ran the 200 for only the second time in the outdoor season. The senior was able to get across the line first in 20.76 seconds while running into a slight wind.

He now ranks second in the Big 12 in the 200, just behind the top mark of 20.72 by Carlos Rodriguez of Kansas State.

Silmon also competed as part of the men’s 400 relay with Harvey McSwain, Ronnie Baker and Raymond Bozmans, finishing second in 39.55.

Parker picked up his third victory of the season in the triple jump with a wind-aided mark of 52-2 1/2.

The senior is the Big 12 leader in the event.


• TCU men’s tennis: The No. 37 Frogs evened its conference record Friday night with a 4-3 victory over No. 46 Texas Tech in front of 965 fans on Senior Night at the Bayard H. Friedman Tennis Center. The victory squared the Horned Frogs’ Big 12 record at 2-2 while moving their overall mark to 17-7.

• UT Arlington softball: San Jose State scored three runs in the bottom of the seventh inning to sweep a doubleheader against the visiting Mavericks. UTA lost the opener 4-0 before dropping the second game 5-4.

• Oklahoma State football: Coach Mike Gundy doesn’t plan to announce his starting quarterback anytime soon. In fact, he might not do it at all. Gundy said after the Cowboys’ annual spring game that he doesn’t plan to discuss the three-way quarterback competition until after the team’s opener against Mississippi State on Aug. 31 in Houston.
