Back-to-back defending champion Katie Rose Higgins of Charleston, SC fired the only sub-par round of the day after shooting a one-under par round of 71.  Higgins carded four birdies on the day.  “Overall I played pretty steady today,” Higgins said.  “I enjoy this tournament and look forward to another solid round tomorrow.  There are a lot of good players here that can shoot a good score.” 

Only one shot back of the first round lead you will find Emily Brooks of Chapel Hill, NC and Ashley Thompson of Clyde, NC.  Both players are hoping to “dethrone” Higgins from her streak of wins in this championship. 

Both Kim Case of Rock Hill, SC and Pat Brogden of Garner, NC fired four-over par rounds of 76 and currently are in a tie for the lead of the senior division. 

In the Carolinas Tees division Charlotte Twitty of Chapin, SC shot a two over par round of 74 and leads this division by two strokes over Cynthia Curry of Charlotte, NC and Jackie King of High Point, NC.  This division players a shorter course.

Players will be placed into flights within their division following the second round of play which begins at 8:00am of #1 and #10 tee.
