Sheridan Takes Lead into Final Day of Eagle Classic

Richmond, VA (WWBT)- The second round of the LPGA Futures Tour Eagle Classic featured a change at the top of the leaderboard and several locals looking to hang on and make the cut.

Sophia Sheridan of Mexico is the leader after Saturday's second round.  Sheridan fired a six under par 66 for the day and is now at -8 for the tournament.  She leads by one stroke over Mo Martin heading into Sunday's final round.  Min Seo Kwak, who led after round one, was one over par for the second round and is now tied for third with Natalie Sheary at -6. 

University of Richmond head golf coach Jill Briles-Hinton entered Saturday at four under par, but fell off her pace a bit, shooting a three over par for the round and now sits at -1 for the tournament.  She made the cut and will participate in the final round on Sunday.  Briles-Hinton, is now tied for 25th place on the leaderboard, after holding a tie for third place after day one.  She will tee off at 8:20am on Sunday.

It marked a frustrating day for Chesterfield teen golfer Lyberty Anderson.  After holding strong with an even par on Friday, Anderson shot an eleven over for the day and did not make the cut.  She shot a bogey or worse on nine of her 18 holes in the second round.

Sunday's action gets underway at 7:50am, with the two lead groups teeing off at 9:30 and 9:40.
