Britt takes top spot as UTC women surge at SoCon Championships

Posted: Updated:

HILTON HEAD, SC (UTC) -- University of Tennessee at Chattanooga sophomore Jordan Britt leads after 36 holes at the Southern Conference Women's Championship at Moss Creek Golf Club.

Britt's one-under par 71 not only vaulted her into the lead individually, but it led UTC up the leaderboard within four shots of first place UNC Greensboro with 18 holes to play.

The Mocs' team total of 303 was Monday's lowest round and mounted a serious charge up the leaderboard. The UTC women started the day in sixth place and trailed by 22 strokes as they finished their round with leader UNCG through six to 12 holes.

But across the day Chattanooga watched the leaders fall back to them, already in the clubhouse with a two-round total of 620. The Spartans (616) shot 17-over par on the back nine to see their lead shrink to just four shots heading into Tuesday's final round. College of Charleston is third at 631.

Britt's one-under par 71 moved the sophomore from tied for seventh into first. The former Signal Mountain and GPS star carded four birdies on her round with 11 pars against three bogeys.

Her 148 (+4) total is three shots clear of teammate Maria Juliana Loza, who is tied for second with Furman's Alexa Rancourt at 151. UNCG's Ana Lucia Martinez is fourth at 152.

Mette Kryger is tied for 19th at 159. Her second round 76 was joined by Marion Duvernay's 82 to round out the team score. Duvernay has a 36-hole total of 162, while Sophie Weilguni stands at 169.

The final round starts at 8:50 a.m., for the Mocs, UNCG and Charleston in the day's final grouping. Weilguni leads off No. 1 followed by Duvernay (9:00), Kryger (9:10), Loza (9:20) and Britt (9:30).
