HOW IT HAPPENED:

  • Led by a trio of two-under par rounds from Javier Calles, Mike Hay and Josep Serra, NSU bumped up from 11th into a tie for 10th – now four-under par for the tournament.
  • Thanks to a six-under par effort, Barry took over atop the leaderboard at 17-under overall. The Buccaneers own a two-shot edge over a Limestone team that still has between three and six holes to complete in the second round.
  • Despite being tied for 10th, NSU sits just five strokes behind both Barton and Florida Southern for fourth place.
  • Calles shot a bogey-free, three-under par on the back nine to move into a tie for fourth at five-under par for the tournament. The sophomore is currently two off the pace set by co-leaders Clay Tucker of Florida Southern and A.J. Ewart of Barry.
  • Serra stands just one back of Calles at four-under and in a tie for 11th.
  • Hay shook off an early bogey on No. 2 by shooting a bogey-free, two-under par the rest of the way to rise into a share of 43rd at even-par through two rounds.
  • A (+3) 75 on Friday has Emanuel Olofsson now in a tie for 81st at five-over par overall, while Jonny Cachon carded his second consecutive round of (+5) 77 to close the day tied for 105th.

STATS OF THE DAY:

  • Prior to play being suspended, scoring conditions proved to be just a tad tougher on Friday with the scoring average moving from 72.49 to 72.78.

BEYOND THE SCORECARD:

  • The Top-6 teams in the 20-team field, along with the Top-2 individuals on a non-advancing team, will qualify for the NCAA Division II National Championship on May 16-20 at TPC Michigan in Detroit, Mich.
