— Arkansas is in second place at the Southeastern Conference Women's Golf Championship after two rounds.

The Razorbacks had to finish the first round Saturday morning after play was suspended because of rain Friday.

Two Arkansas golfers are in the top 10 in the individual standings. Sophomore Gabriela Lopez is tied for fifth after shooting a 72 Friday, while senior Emily Tubert is tied for eighth after shooting a 73.

No. 13 Vanderbilt leads the competition at plus-nine, six shots ahead of the fourth-ranked Razorbacks.

The final round is scheduled to start at 8 a.m., but Arkansas' first tee time isn't until 9:40 a.m.
