The team of Annick Haczkiewicz and Sydney Smith fired rounds of 66 and 68 at El Caballero Country Club in Tarzana, Calif., to finish at 10 under and as medalists in stroke play.

Four teams, among those Haley Moore and Gigi Stoll, tied for second at 8 under. First-round leaders Angelina Ye and Yachun Chang fired a second-round 73 but still managed a tie for sixth at 7 under.
