AU Golfers Improve In Rain-Delayed Round 2

The Auburn women's golf team moved up in the standings in the second day of competition at the NCAA Championship.

Athens, Ga.--With bad weather suspending play twice on Wednesday the Auburn Tigers weren't able to finish their second round of play in the NCAA Women's Golf Tournament, but did improve after struggling the previous day.

The Tigers were last of the 24 teams after round one. When they resume play to finish their second round on Thursday they will be in 20th place.

A big reason for the improved play was a three-under-par 69 from junior Marta Sanz, who did finish on Wednesday.

"We played a lot better today and it was good to see the team out there with some confidence," said Auburn head coach Kim Evans. "We had some good momentum going there on the back nine and I think the weather messed with that a little, but I was still proud of the way they came out and battled today."

The Tigers finished round one at 17-over-par on the University of Georgia Golf Course. They finished play on Wednesday night at 23-over-par with two of the team's five players yet to complete round two.

Sophomore Victoria Trapani shot an even par 72 while freshman Jamie Yun finished with a 76.

Senior Carlie Yadloczky will resume play on No. 18 and she is five-over-par for her second round. Junior Diana Fernandez will resume play on hole No. 17 with a four-over-par round going.

"I think everyone was a lot more comfortable today and it showed," said Evans. "We can't let this weather stop us, we have to come back out here tomorrow with a good finish and then get right back to work."

Southern Cal is running away from the field for the team championship. The Trojans finished a dozen strokes under par on Wednesday and are 16 shots under par after two days of the four day tournament.
