KNOXVILLE, Tenn. – The University of Arkansas women’s golf team slipped seven spots to 14th in second round action at the Mercedes Benz Collegiate at Fox Den Country Club in Knoxville, Tenn., Saturday.

Arkansas carded a 309 Saturday combining with a first-round 304 for 613. They trail the leader by 39 strokes.

"Today’s round was disappointing," said Arkansas head coach Shauna Estes-Taylor. "It was tough out there again but we didn’t play as well as we can. Conditions were again tough with the wind and rain but that really wasn’t the problem. I know we’re a better team and we have to dig deep in our hearts and see what we can do in the final round."

Razorback senior Kelli Shean continues to play well for Arkansas with a three-over 75 in the second round. Shean is tied for 16th overall with a 148 (73-75).

Sophomore Katy Nugent is tied for 47th overall with a 154 (76-78), followed by senior Alex Schulte who is tied for 60th with a 156 (76-80). Freshman Victoria Vela (79-78) and senior Kristin Ingram (79-78) remained tied at 67 with 157.

Corinna Rees, playing as an individual, played one-over and is tied for 24th with 150 (77-73).

"Corinna played a heck of a round today," Estes-Taylor said. "She was solid out there today. We did a lot of good things as a team today but let a lot of little things get away. We are going to focus on the basics and go out and try to go as low as we can go in the final round."

Host and No. 18 Tennessee leads for the second consecutive day with a second round 291 for 574. Twenty-second-ranked Louisville is second with 582, followed by No. 24 South Carolina with 592, No. 43 Kent State with 596 and No. 12 Florida with 599 rounding out the top five.

Play continues Sunday with the final round. For more information about Arkansas women’s golf, log on to ArkansasRazorbacks.com.
