FRANKLIN, TN (April 1, 2017) -- For the second consecutive day Alabama has carded a season-low score and after 36-holes they have taken the lead at the Mason Rudolph Championship. The Crimson Tide (-18) will begin Sunday's final round one shot in front of first round leader No. 5 Florida (-17) and four shots in front of host and defending champion No. 3 Vanderbilt (-14).

On day two at the Vanderbilt Legends Club Alabama, in search of their first win of the year, stormed into the lead with a 12-under day that was led by Josh Sedeno's second consecutive 3-under 68.

Sedeno, a redshirt freshman is 6-under for the tournament and he is currently in line for his best collegiate finish. Currently in a three-way for first, Sedeno is yet to finish better than his tied for 29th showing at the Desert Mountain Intercollegiate.

In the second round Sedano birdied five-times and bogeyed twice. His best stretch of golf came when carded three consecutive birdies on Nos. 6-8.

Besides Sedano there are three other Alabama players in the top-20; Lee Hodges (T4; -5), Davis Riley (T12; -3) and Jonathan Hardee (T18; -2).

Horsfield has combined rounds of 69-67 to reach 6-under. During the second round Horsfield rolled in six birdies while also bogeying twice.

For Zhang it has been rounds of 69-67 as well and like Horsfield he carded six birdies and two bogeys in the second round. Zhang, who this week last year won the Azalea Invitational, birdied each of the last two holes.
