AUBURN, Ala. – The top-ranked Duke women’s golf team went out early Sunday morning and posted a one-over-par, 289, to jump into second place at the Evans Derby Experience with 18 holes remaining at the 6,250-yard, par 72 Saugahatchee Country Club in Auburn, Ala.

Duke’s round of 289 was tied for a team best and the Blue Devils feature a 36-hole ledger of 582, which is only three shots behind Texas (579). Rounding out the top 10 include Arkansas (584), Florida State (585), Kent State (590), Florida (592), Auburn (593), Baylor (594), South Carolina (598) and Mississippi State (598).

After collecting only four birdies on the front nine in Saturday’s first round, Duke rolled in eight Sunday morning. The Blue Devils were three-under-par on the front nine and closed with a four-over-par ledger to finish with a 289. Duke added six birdies on the back nine to finish with 14 for the day.

Junior Ana Belac turned in her fifth round in the 60s this season and her 15th in her career with a three-under, 69, Sunday. A native of Portoroz, Slovenia, Belac had her putter rolling early connecting on a 10-footer for birdie on the 525-yard, par five first hole, followed by a three-footer for birdie on No. 4 and a four-footer on No. 8 on her way to making the turn at three-under-par. She went to 4-under-par with a two-putt birdie on the par five 10th. Belac suffered her first bogey of the day on No. 12, but came back with another two-putt birdie on the 15th. She closed with a bogey on No. 16 and two pars to finish with a 69.

Belac hit nine fairways, 13 greens and rolled 30 putts in the round. She enters the final round only one shot off the lead as Kaitlyn Papp of Texas and Clara Manzalini of Florida are at two-under-par, 142.

Duke rookie Gina Kim is also one shot off the lead as she has totaled rounds of 72 and 71 for a one-under, 143. A product of Chapel Hill, N.C., Kim carded two birdies over her first seven holes to move to one-under-par early. She rolled in a 27-footer for birdie on the 157-yard, par three fourth and then on No. 7 she hit her seven iron to six feet and rolled in the birdie.

Kim moved to three-under with birdies on No. 10 and No. 13, but closed with bogeys on No. 16 and No. 18 to finish with a 71. She hit 11 fairways, 11 greens and carded 27 putts.

Also with a one-under-par through nine holes to open the day, senior Virginia Elena Carta netted a six-foot birdie on No. 1 and a five-footer on No. 8. She played her final nine at two-over as she was held to one birdie on the 350-yard, par four 14th. Carta, who is from Udine, Italy, hit 10 fairways, 15 greens and had 34 putts in the second round. She enters Monday’s action tied for 19th with a three-over, 147.

Sophomore Miranda Wang signed for a 76 and sophomore Jaravee Boonchant carded a 77 to round out the scores for the Blue Devils. Wang, a product of Beijing, China, was limited to one birdie on No. 6 as she hit her nine iron from 129 yards to within three feet. She hit 11 fairways, 10 greens and had 31 putts. Boonchant, who is from Bangkok, Thailand, also notched one birdie, on No. 10, on her way to finishing with a season-high 77.

Playing as an individual, sophomore Hannah O’Sullivan posted a 91 on Sunday.

The Blue Devils will tee off Monday beginning at 9:15 a.m., along with Texas, Arkansas and Florida State with a shotgun start.

Duke will tee off Sunday beginning at 8:30 a.m., off hole No. 1 along with Mississippi State and South Carolina.
