No. 1 ranked Alabama will play for SEC Championship in Birmingham Sunday

The Alabama women's golf team will enter Sunday's final round in a tie for first at the Southeastern Conference Championship at Greystone Golf and Country Club in Birmingham. The Crimson Tide and the Florida Gators are tied for the lead at 2-over par 578 through two rounds to share the lead.

Texas A&M is in third at 14-over par 590 and will play in the final group with the Tide and the Gators on Sunday. Sunday's final round will begin at 8 a.m. CDT. Alabama will tee off in the final pairing beginning at 9:40 am.

Nicole Morales will tee off at 9:40 am on Sunday followed by Janie Jackson at 9:50, Lakareber Abe at 10:00, Cheyenne Knight at 10:10 and Emma Talley at 10:20.

Alabama carded a 4-over par 292 on Saturday while Florida shot a 2-under 286 to move into a share of the lead.

"We played fairly well today at the beginning and the end of the round," Alabama Coach Mic Potter said. "However, we made some mistakes in the middle of the day that were costly. Obviously we'd like to be leading, but there are 12 other teams that would like to be in our position. We just need to go tomorrow, play our best, and see what happens."

Individually, freshman Cheyenne Knight was the lone Alabama golfer under par today, firing a 1-under 71 to move to -1 (72-71/143) for the tournament. Senior Emma Talley (70-73/143) is also at 1-under after a 1-over par 73 on Saturday. The two are part of a three-way tie for second.

Lakareber Abe sits alone in 5th at even par 144 (70-74) after a 2-over 74 today. Janie Jackson is in a tie for 20th at 5-over par 149 (75-74), while Nicole Morales is in a tie for 24th at 6-over 150 (74-76).
