Despite a lower score from Sunday's first round, the Tigers dropped a pair of spots in the standings. Auburn head coach Kim Evans said she is disappointed, but likes the progress she is seeing in the team.
"We are very close, we are getting there," said Evans. "It is frustrating to see the progress in your team, but not get great scores out of it. But, we can't dwell on it, we are making good progress and I like where we are headed."
Junior Haley Wilson was the big mover of the day for the Tigers, moving up 26 spots in the standings to a tie for 47th. Wilson rebounded from her first-round 80 to card a 1-under-par 71 in the second round, finishing the day at 7-over 151.
