CHAPEL HILL, N.C. – Senior Haley Sanders fired a 3-under 69 Saturday in the second round of the Ruth’s Chris Tar Heel Invitational hosted by North Carolina at the UNC Finley Golf Course.

Sanders’ 69, which included five birdies, is one stroke off her lowest career round of 68 which she recorded last season at the Cougar Classic. She is tied for fifth heading into tomorrow’s final round.

“I love this team’s attitude on the golf course,” head coach Michele Drinkard said.  “At any point in the round, they can take their game to another level which is fun to coach! Today we improved as a team and I’m looking forward to teeing it up tomorrow.”

Ole Miss shot a 9-over 279 today and after two rounds of play the Rebels are tied for sixth in the 18-team field (20-over, 596).  Baylor’s Haley Davis leads the field after two rounds of play, firing a 4-under 140 while North Carolina leads the field with a 5-over 581.

Taelor Rubin carded a 72 for her lowest round of the fall season. She was three over after the 16th hole, but made up the strokes on 17 with an eagle and on 18 with a birdie.

Alison Hovatter and Abby Newton each carded a 6-over 78.

Ole Miss will play the third and final round tomorrow in the Ruth’s Chris Tar Heel Invitational and live stats can be found at golfstat.com. Fans can also follow the women’s golf team on Twitter @OleMissWGolf and on Facebook at Facebook.com/OleMissWGolf.
