QUOTING COACH Kalen Anderson
"We just mentally hung in there - we stayed really tough. It's so windy out there, and it's really difficult scoring conditions. We're staying very patient. I couldn't be happier for Gaby. She's really taking one shot at a time, and we're so proud of her. She's really stepped up when it has mattered most."
ROUND CHANGER Gaby Amos
Gaby Amos led the Gamecocks with a 74 (+3) after recording three birdies in Saturday's second round. Two of the junior's three birdies came over her final six holes of the day.
