HOW IT HAPPENED:
- NSU found itself in sixth following the opening round, yet climbed two spots into fourth in the afternoon after pairing its round one 291 with a (+2) 286 effort.
- Keiser (-1) is the only team currently under par, in front of second-place Barry (+3) by four strokes.
- No. 2 Lynn stands in third on the leaderboard at four-over par.
- Millet appeared to find his groove on the second nine in round one, when he birdied three of his final seven holes to post an even-par 71. That momentum carried into the second round, as the Spaniard then birdied three of his first seven holes. A triple-bogey on No. 9 thwarted the run, yet a late eagle on the Par-5 18th sent him into the clubhouse with a (-2) 69 and in a tie for second – one off the pace Keiser’s Isac Wallin.
- Like he has for much of the season, Jimenez continued his steady play on Monday, tallying just two bogeys in the opening round to go along with three birdies. He would add 13 pars in the second round, closing the afternoon with scores of 70 and 72 to position himself into a tie for fifth just three off the lead.
- Making his first appearance of the season, Daniel Celestino registered an eagle apiece in each of his two rounds Monday. Competing as an individual, the junior currently sits tied for 18th at three-over par.
- Javier Calles, tied for 22nd, is on the cusp of yet another Top-20 finish thanks to his rounds of 72 and 74.
- Joseba Torres shook off his opening-round 80 by responding with an even-par round in the afternoon to move into a tie for 41st.
- Mike Hay has a share of 46th at 11-over par.
Grouped with Eastern Florida State and Rollins, NSU will tee off its final round Tuesday morning at 10:20 a.m. For live coverage, visit the schedule page on NSUSharks.com or follow the Sharks on Instagram or Twitter at @NSU_MGolf.
