MUSCLE SHOALS, Ala. – The Belmont women's golf team remained in fourth place after two rounds of the OVC Championship held this week at the Schoolmaster Course at the RTJ Trail at The Shoals in Muscle Shoals, Alabama.

In Tuesday's second round, the Bruins stayed consistent, posting another team score of 301 to keep them in fourth place with a 36-hole mark of 602.   Murray State stays on top at 580, with Eastern Kentucky in second at 585 and Jacksonville State in third at 596.

Their score of 301 on Tuesday is the lowest second round score by any Belmont women's golf team at any conference championship and their 602 is the team's lowest 36 hole score at a conference tournament.  Both scores bested records set at the 2017 OVC Championship at Hampton Cove. 

Four Bruins are among the top-20 after two rounds.  Freshman Cameron Fish carded a two-over 74 in the second round to move up to ninth place at 149.  She is ten shots behind the individual leader, Anna Moore of Murray State (139).

Three BU golfers are tied for 16th place at 152: senior Emma Kate Liu, junior Julia Nittoli, sophomore Maribeth Peevy.  Liu carded an even par 72, while Nittoli shot a 76 and Peevy posted a 79. 

Freshman Katelyn Dunstan is tied for 26th place at 157 after shooting an 80 on Tuesday. 

The third and final round of the championship will begin Wednesday morning at 8:00am.  The Belmont golfers will be teeing off the first hole from 8:50-9:30am with Austin Peay and Tennessee Tech.
