TUCSON, AZ -

Another cold and rainy day in Corvallis, Ore. did stop No. 11 University of Arizona women's golf as the Wildcats climbed to second after round two at the Pac-12 Championships.

No. 2 UCLA continues to lead the team race with a 573 (-3). No. 11 Arizona moved from third to second on day two after shooting a one-under par 287 for a total of 574 (-2). The Wildcats have all five of their players sitting in the top 28 heading into Sunday's final round. No. 9 Stanford rounds out the top three with a 577 (+1).

No. 13 sophomore Lindsey Weaver shares the lead in the individual race with UCLA's No. 16 Erynne Lee. Both players hold a total score of 140 (-4). Weaver shot an even-par round of 72 on Saturday. She now has 14 rounds at or below par in 2013-14.

Weaver is trying to become the first Wildcat to win the individual title since Lorena Ochoa in 2001.

Round three begins at 9:50 a.m. MST/PT on Sunday for the Wildcats. Arizona is paired with No. 2 UCLA.

At the Gallery Golf Club at Dove Mountain, the UA men's golf team compiled a team total of 389 for Rounds 2 and 3 for a combined total of 1129. The Wildcats finished in eighth place.

"Looking at just the scores, it's a disappointing day," head coach Jim Anderson said. "What doesn't show up is how difficult the course was playing. Given the conditions that we faced, the golf course is the same for everyone. We let it beat us in a few spots but with that said, I'm really proud of the way that the guys hung in there."

 With gusting winds ranging from 35 to 45 mph, the conditions were difficult for the field. Stanford continued to lead the field with a round three score of 367 for a combined total of 1083. Stanford is currently 21 strokes ahead of California, who sits in second place. In the individual race, Patrick Rodgers of Stanford leads with a combined total of 209 (-7).

"Brenden (Redfern), Alex (McMahon) and Kolton (Lapa) all finished three-under on their last three holes," Anderson said. "The fact that no one gave up, and that's what we told them that we wanted, makes me happy. The effort we had today was all I could have asked for."

For the round, McMahon led the Wildcats shooting just three-over for a score of 75. McMahon also leads the team overall with a total of 218 for a tie for sixth place. Both Erik Oja and Redfern shot five-over with scores of 77. Benson Liu and Lapa both shot rounds of 80 (+8). Christian Colegrove rounded out the lineup with a score of 84 (+12).

The final round of the 2014 Pac-12 Men's Golf Championship will begin at 7:30 a.m. MST. Admission is free.
