RALEIGH, N.C. — The LSU women’s golf team Friday finished the second day of the Raleigh regional in third place, and senior Madelene Sagstrom posted her fourth straight under-par round to continue to hold the individual lead after 36 holes.

LSU posted a 16-over-par score of 304 to stand at 16-over 592 (288-304), in third place. Top-seed South Carolina, which had the only under-par round on the second day of 2-under 286, is in front. The Gamecocks are at 5-over 581 (295-286) with Alabama in second at 13-over 589 (294-295).

The top six teams in the regional go to the NCAA championships May 22-27 in Bradenton, Florida. LSU, the second seed in the regional, is four shots clear of the cut line entering Saturday’s final round.

Sagstrom again dominated the first nine holes with four birdies, turning in a 3-under 33, making her 8-under on the first nine holes over two days. Despite a double bogey on the inward nine, she was able to post just 1-over for the 2-under round of 70, giving her a 36-hole total of 6-under 138.

She is two shots clear of second place Emma Talley of Alabama at 4-under 140 after back-to-back rounds of 70.

The final round Saturday begins at 6:30 a.m.
