A 68 by Spraggs was the best second-day effort at the Lossiemouth venue, where the only other sub-70 round was shot by Callum MacNeill (University of the Highlands and Islands).

In the ladies’ event, overnight leader Georgia Gilling (Stirling) also consolidated her advantage as she added a par-72 to her opening 76 on Moray Old.

In the team matchplay competitions, Stirling (Eggenberger, Holmes, MacDonald, Michael Howard and Zander Culverwell) and St Andrews (Stephen, Bradbury, Brain and MacDonald) took the honours.
