SEBRING, Fla. (Jan. 11, 2018) – Emilia Migliaccio has already proved her mettle on the Florida Orange Blossom Circuit. The Wake Forest sophomore won the 2018 South Atlantic Amateur (Sally) title on a blustery day in Ormond Beach, Fla., last January.
Now she’s closing in on a different title.
Over the years, few women have pulled off the Sally-Harder Hall double. But at 2 over after 54 holes at Harder Hall Country Club, Migliaccio has a one-shot lead at 18 holes still to play.

Behind her, another ACC standout remains in position to challenge. Second-round leader Anna Redding, a senior at Virginia, posted her highest round of the tournament on Friday, a 3-over 75. She’s still only one shot off the pace.
Redding reached the quarterfinals of the North & South Women’s Amateur was runner-up at the Sally Amateur in 2018.
Annabell Fuller, a GB&I Curtis Cupper from London, had a third-round 71 to reach 4 over for the tournament and is third. Lei Ye is another shot back in fourth, following by Tuan yu Chiang who is 7 over and solo fifth.
