ATHENS, Ga. --- The Georgia women's golf team carded an 11-over 299 in the second round of the 41st Annual Liz Murphey Fall Previews at the University of Georgia Golf Course on Saturday, leaving the Bulldogs tied for fifth.

Manuela Carbajo Re fired an even-par 72 to lead Georgia, while Emilie Burger posted her second straight 73, Rocio Sanchez Lobato shot 74, Collins Bradshaw notched an 80 and Kailey Walsh signed for an 81.

"We're in position," head coach Josh Brewer said. "We wanted to be in the last pairing but we're in the next-to-last pairing. We still get see the leaders and maybe we can put some pressure on them if we get off to a good start."

The Bulldogs finished well, playing the final two holes at 2-under.

"We finished with birdies," Brewer said. "It helped having Manuela and Emilie close strong. Ro fought. It was a 74 but it probably could've been an 80 if she didn't chip and putt so well."

Carbajo Re's back-and-forth loop included seven birdies, seven bogeys and just four pars.

The freshman from Necochea, Argentina, was even through seven holes after bogeys at No. 1 and No. 2, a birdie at No. 3, another bogey at No. 4 and birdies at No. 5 and No. 7. Carbajo Re bogeyed No. 8 and No. 9 to turn at 2-over. She fell to 3-over with a third straight bogey at No. 10, but responded with a trio of birdies at No. 11, No. 12 and No. 13.

Following her only two consecutive pars of the day, Carbajo Re bogeyed No. 16 and birdied No. 17 before finishing with a par.

Auburn retained the team lead after shooting a 293. The Tigers are at 4-over 580, five shots ahead of Alabama. Rounding out the top-10 schools are North Carolina at 586, Southern Cal at 592, the Bulldogs and Texas A&M at 595, Oklahoma at 596 and Tennessee, Duke and Denver all at 597.

Auburn's Marta Sanz used a 3-under 69 to surge from sixth to first on the individual leaderboard. She is at 4-under 140, two shots better than Purdue's Paula Reto. For Georgia, Burger is tied for 15th at 146, Bradshaw and Carbajo Re are tied for 29th at 146, Sanchez Lobato is tied for 40th at 151 and Walsh is tied for 83rd at 160.

The Bulldogs will be paired with Texas A&M and Southern Cal during Sunday's final round, teeing off in waves from 8:50-9:30 from No. 1. Brewer is familiar with USC, having spent the previous four seasons as an assistant coach at the school.

"I know who they are," Brewer said. "They have seven straight years in the top five at the national championships. If we can stay around them - and we did it in Charleston (at the season-opening Cougar Class) - then I know we're headed in the right direction."
