During the second day of the meet, Sinz took lead of the Auburn women’s golf team. On Monday, she shot a 68 (-4). On Tuesday, she shot a 71 (-1), followed by four birdies.
The Tigers fought hard with all five players in the lineup shooting 76 or better on Tuesday but fell to fifth after carding a 294 (+6) in round two.
“It was a bit of a disappointing round for the team but a solid round for freshman,” Sinz said.
Auburn head coach Melissa Luellen remained hopeful as she said, “The course was scorable today, and I felt like we threw some shots away. We have to be sharp with decision-making and committing to those decisions to post a good, solid round tomorrow. We certainly have the firepower, just need the execution.”
