HANAHAN, S.C. - The Auburn women's golf team finished its second day of competition tied for 10th with Wisconsin, carding another 7-over -par 295 to finish the day at 14-over 590. Senior Marta Sanz shot a 1-under 71, moving from 26th to 16th.

"Marta had a solid back nine today and finished at 1-under, Alex Harrell had a good round for her as well and those are two positive rounds for us," said associate head coach Andrew Pratt. "All in all, I think we put a little too much pressure on ourselves today and we just need to get back to the basics tomorrow, take it one shot at a time and let the birdies and scores come to us. Hopefully we can do that, move up the leaderboard and get some confidence moving forward."
