San Diego State's Emma Henrikson (Malmo, Sweden) fired an even-par 144 on Monday to lead the Aztec women's golf team during the first two rounds of The Gold Rush presented by Farmers Insurance at the 6,077-yard, par-72 Yorba Linda Country Club. With her performance, Henrikson sits atop the individual leaderboard by three strokes in the field of 65 golfers.

Henrikson opened with a 1-under 71, the second-lowest round of the day, before carding a 1-over 73 in the afternoon session. The SDSU freshman managed to offset nine bogeys with a tournament-leading nine birdies, including three straight on holes 12-14 during the second round to grab a three-stroke lead over Long Beach State's Shawnee Martinez (+3) and a six-shot bulge over Ronnie Valerio of UC Irvine (+6) heading into Tuesday's final round.
