The Hornets carried a six-shot lead after Day 1 with a 9-over 297 but battled much tougher conditions in Monday's second round, struggling to a 45-over 333.

Senior Branson Terrell (Lynchburg, Va.) also posted a top-five finish, shooting 71-85--156 to tie for fourth.

Junior Carter Old (Chesapeake, Va.) tied for eighth at 76-84--160, and freshman Harry Hodgert (Lynchburg, Va.) finished in a tie for 12th, 80-82--162.

Host Goucher topped the seven-team field by two strokes with a two-day total of 628.
