Harang Lee's four birdies were the most by any Bulldog on Saturday.

HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. --- The Georgia women's golf team received individual rounds of 75 or better by all five Bulldogs en route to an 11-over 295 in Saturday's second round of the Darius Rucker Intercollegiate. That represented the fourth-best team score of the day in a strong field featuring six top-10 and 12 top-25 teams.
"We were really close to putting up an amazing score today," head coach Josh Brewer said. "From start to finish, I think we played as good of golf as anyone out there today."
Georgia was under under-par much of the day and suffered from playing the final two holes at 7-over as a team.
"It's the fourth time in eight rounds this spring we've had a chance to shoot under-par," Brewer said. "When you do something like that, you're eventually going to figure out how to keep it there. We'll get there. For this group, it's another important step in the maturation process to follow up a good round today and go back out there and follow that up with another solid effort tomorrow."
Manuela Carbajo Ré led Georgia with a 1-over 72. Rounding out the counting scores were a 73 by Harang Lee and a pair 75s – the score tallied by Amira Alexander, Rocio Sanchez Lobato and Mary Ellen Shurman – rounded out the Bulldogs' counting tallies.
Georgia, therefore, dropped a 75 a day after counting an 82 and an 83.
Individually, Carbajo Ré is tied for 10th at 145, Lee is tied for 46th at 152, Alexaner is tied for 69th at 157, Sanchez Lobato is tied for 76th at 158 and Shuman 84th at 162.
No. 3 Duke remained atop the team leaderboard following a 291. The Blue Devils are eight shots ahead of No. 14 Vanderbilt. UGA enters the final round in 17th place at 612.
Alabama's Stephanie Meadow leads the individual field at 3-under 139, a shot better than Duke's Celine Boutier and LSU's Carolina Nistrup.
