“We did a better job today with our attitude beginning at hole one,” head coach Trelle McCombs said. “The team still made a couple mistakes that cost us some strokes today. Par is a great score on this course and we need to make sure that we are doing everything we can to card as many pars tomorrow as possible.”

Missouri (312-321), No. 7 Florida (315-318) and Mississippi (317-321) round out the leaderboard.

Individually, Chelsea Mocio (82-73) made a 39-place jump in the standing moving into a tie for 21st after day-two, Mocio carded a one-over with three birdies on the day. Katerina Ruzickova (80-76) bounced back from a tough first day to shoot just four-over on Saturday and move into a tie for 27th, improving 20 places on the day.

“Chelsea played a vital role our improvement today,” McCombs added. “As a team, we really needed her to bounce back and have a great day ad she went out there and did that. I am very proud to see that sort of resilience and how she handled herself today.”

Sarah Beth Davis (78-79), Susy Grunden (80-81) and Natalie Reeves (80-84) currently occupy in 31st, 55th and 62nd place respectively to round out the Aggies competing at their first-ever SEC Championship.
