AUBURN, Ala. -
The No. 3 University of Alabama women’s golf team moved up three spots on the second day of the Southeastern Conference Championships. The Crimson Tide carded a 3-over-par 291 to move into second place on Saturday afternoon at 6-over-par through two rounds.
Auburn leads the event on its home course at 3-under-par after posting a 2-over-par, 290 on Saturday in windy conditions that hampered scoring for most teams on the par-72, 6,364-yard Auburn University Club course.
Freshman Hannah Collier paced Alabama in the second round with a 2-under-par 70 that featured three birdies on the back nine for a season-low. Collier was one of only three players to score under par during second-round action and is tied for ninth overall at 146 (76-70).
Tennessee’s Erica Popson leads all individuals at 140 (66-74).
Brooke Pancake had the second best round of the day for UA with an even-par 72 while Stephanie Meadow turned in a 1-over-par 73 after recording a birdie on No. 18. Pancake is fourth overall at 2-under-par 142 (70-72) and Meadow is tied for fifth at even-par 144 (71-73).
Camilla Lennarth carded a 76 on Saturday and Jennifer Kirby, who struggled on the back nine, turned in a 79.
Alabama, which has a five-stroke cushion over third-place LSU, will return to the tee box Sunday morning starting at 8:50 a.m. CDT. The Tide will be paired with both Auburn and LSU as it looks to make up the 10 strokes needed to repeat as SEC Champions.
