Sarah Jane Smith leads the CitiBanamex Lorena Ochoa Invitational Presented by Aeromexico and Delta by two shots over Gaby Lopez of Mexico City, Mi Jung Hur of South Korea and Mariajo Uribe of Colombia.

The 2006 rookie has not yet held the second-round lead in her career and is in search of her first victory on the LPGA Tour.

“I feel a little bit nervous to be honest, I have never been in this position before,” said Smith.  “So even a couple times today I was a little nervous, but I was happy with the way that I handled it. Hopefully I can just keep doing what I have been doing and see what happens.”

Lopez, fan favorite and playing on her home course here at the Club de Golf México, shot a second-round 65 with one eagle and 6 birdies.

“A very special round, being here playing for my country, on my hometown, on my home course it’s just very special,” said Lopez. “ I had a lot of people supporting me, either if I play good or if I play bad. So it is just very special to be here, I feel very blessed, I had a tremendous year and I am just enjoying the rest of the season, I have two more days to make good rounds and just prove myself what I can do.”
