Sophomore Travis Esway (145) continues to lead the Wildcats, while junior Josh Elser (145) joins his teammate in a four-way-tie for 17th place.   


Following a 34th place tie, junior Josh Wilks (155) falls into a tie for 82nd place.  Meanwhile junior Brad Prouty shot a 77 in round one, and added two strokes in round two (79) to finish with a 156 after the first day.


The two individual participants for the Wildcats, Mark Lamb and Nathan Tyler both improved in their second rounds.  Lamb (144) is tied for 12th while Tyler leads the Cats with a 143 combined score and moves into a 10th place tie.
