CORAL SPRINGS, Fla. (Dec. 18, 2013) – France’s Shannon Aubert posted her second- straight under-par round Wednesday to take the lead after the second round of the 72-hole Dixie Amateur at Heron Bay Golf Club.

Aubert’s two-round total of 138 (68-70) put her one stroke ahead of Nicole Morales of South Salem, N.Y., who followed an opening- round 70 with a three-under-par 69 on a windswept course which allowed only six under-par rounds all day in the field of 112 players.

First-round leader Mariana Sims from Austin, Texas, fell back into eighth position after a 78 and was at 144, six shots back.

Mariah Stackhouse was in third following an even-par round. The Riverdale, Ga., resident was at 141, a shot ahead of defending champion Isabelle Lendl and Meghan Stasi.

Lendl, from Port St. Lucie, Fla., playing in the final group of the day, is at 142 while Stasi, the head golf coach at the University of Mississippi, followed her opening-round 69 with a one-over 73.
