STANFORD, Calif. --- Georgia posted a 15-over 297 in Friday's second round of the NCAA Women's Golf West Regional at the Stanford University Golf Course. The 18th-ranked Bulldogs enter Saturday's final round at eighth on the team leaderboard.

The top eight teams will advance to the NCAA Championships in a week and a half at the University of Georgia Golf Course. The Bulldogs are a single stroke ahead of Kent State on the current "cut line."

The Bulldogs struggled late in the day, playing the final two holes at a combined 7-over, but head coach Josh Brewer was still generally pleased with his team's performance.

"Overall, we played a very good day of golf," Brewer said. "We struggled on just a couple of holes at the end of the round. Today, I think we played 14 or 15 holes of good golf versus yesterday when we played 12 or 13 good holes. Tomorrow our mindset is to go out and play all 18 holes well."

Rocio Sanchez Lobato led the Bulldogs with a 2-over 73, making five birdies on the day. Georgia also counted a pair of 75s from Amira Alexander and Emilie Burger and a 76 by Manuela Carbajo Ré, while dropping Kailey Walsh's 79.

"Ro had a nice round for us today," Brewer said. "It's always nice to see someone making birdies. I think that helps everyone else get in the right mindset. I'm sure it was a good shot of confidence for her and I expect that to carry over into the final round."

12 Purdue shot 286 to move atop the team leaderboard at 577 by one shot over No. 7 Vanderbilt. No. 1 Southern Cal is third at 579, followed by South Carolina at 581, No. 14 Stanford at 585, No. 19 Baylor at 586, Oregon at 599, Georgia at 595, Kent State at 596 and No. 6 Arizona at 598. Six more teams are within 10 strokes over the Bulldogs with Ohio State at 600, LSU at 601, No. 25 Pepperdine and No. 24 Texas A&M at 602, San Jose State at 605 and UNLV at 606.

Southern Cal's Annie Park signed for an even-par 71 to remain in the individual lead at 4-under 138, a stroke better than Oregon's Cassy Isagawa. For Georgia, Burger is tied for eighth at 143, Alexander, Carbajo Ré and Sanchez Lobato are all tied for 51st at 151 and Walsh is tied for 84th at 156.

The Bulldogs will be paired with Oregon and Kent State during the final round, teeing off beginning at 10:30 am ET.

"I think it's better that we go out there in the morning and play," Brewer said. "We control our own destiny instead of having to wait until we play. I really think it's good for us that we have the first tee times tomorrow."
