🔼 Catch Me If You Can. No. 7 Women's golf expanded its lead to 14 strokes after the second round of the NCAA Auburn Regional on Tuesday. The Tigers were the only team under par during round two, shooting 1-under (287) for a 36-hole total of 577 (+1).

Freshman Anna Davis tied the best round of the day with a 69 (-3) on Tuesday. Davis' second shot on No. 16, a par 5, rolled onto the front of the green from 220 yards out before she made the long eagle putt of around 65 feet. She became the second Auburn player to eagle the hole during the event, as Megan Schofill recorded one on Monday. Davis' round moved her into a tie for second place individually at 2-under for the tournament (142).

🔼  Didn’t Sting a Bit Auburn recorded five defensive runs saved and hit three homers in a 7-2 win at Georgia Tech Tuesday, completing a midweek sweep of the Yellow Jackets this season. Chris Stanfield robbed a two-run home run in the second inning and threw out a runner at the plate in the third, while Cade Belyeu brought back a second two-run homer in right field in the ninth.
