The seventh-ranked Sooners totaled 594 strokes (+24) after two rounds at the par-71 Long Cove Golf Club. No. 3 Duke tops the leaderboard after logging a two-round 575 (+7), and No. 14 Vanderbilt is in second with a 583 (+15). No. 13 South Carolina is in third place with a 590 (+22).

Senior Emily Collins followed Jao-Javanil, carding a 73 (+2) in round two. Collins shot a 77 (+6) in round one to total 150 strokes (+8) after 36 holes and is tied for 30th individually.
Anne-Catherine Tanguay was one shot behind Collins on the day, shooting a 3-over 74. The senior leads the Sooners in overall score, totaling a 144 (+2), and is tied for eighth place. She shot the Sooners' only under-par round for the first 18 holes (1-under 70).

OU head coach Veronique Drouin-Luttrell said she hopes her team can continue to climb in Sunday's final round.
"We played a little better today," Drouin-Luttrell said. "We have one more day and anything can happen. We're only a few shots back from third and we can make up some ground by making pars."
The third and final round of the Darius Rucker Intercollegiate will start Sunday at 7 a.m. CT. Live stats can be found at GolfStat.com.
