HOOVER, Ala. (April 15, 2021)-----Fourth-ranked LSU fired a 12-under 276 for a two-day total of 28-under 548 at the SEC Women's Golf Championship Thursday at Greystone's Legacy Course.

The Tiges enter the final day of stroke play with a five-shot lead over No. 1 South Carolina. The Gamecocks carded a 7-under 281 for a total of 553. Auburn (278-557) stands third.

South Carolina's Pauline Roussin-Bouchard (67-134) sits atop the individual leaderboard, two shots ahead of a trio of golfers that includes Auburn's Mychael O'Berry (66-136), Vanderbilt's Celina Sattelkau (69-136) and LSU's Kendall Griffin (69-136). O'Berry's 66 was the low-round of the day.
