NASHVILLE --- Morgan Rood closed out her career at Tennessee State by etching her name in the record books. A day after matching the programs single round record, Rood followed with a 75 on Tuesday to match the TSU 36-hole record of 147 held by Jessica Nemnich (2006).
The senior led the Tigers for the second straight day and finished for a tie for 16th in a field of 48 golfers. On the par-4, 14th, Rood used an 8-iron on her approach shot which fell little short of the green. Rood hit a 60-degree wedge from 15 yards that stuck between the cup and the flag before falling for a birdie.
Kalee Rhodes, Haleigh Riley and Savannah Szozda joined Rood in scoring for the Tigers in round two.
Up Next: The Tigers will return to action on Mar. 15-17 at the Bobby Nichols Intercollegiate in Sevierville, Tenn.
