Second Round Scoring

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. - Jeremy Wall had 13 pars and three birdies on Friday to post a 1-under round of 71 for the Loyola University Maryland men's golf team, leading the Greyhounds in the second round of the NCAA Regionals at the UNC Finley Golf Course.

Wall bogeyed his day's first hole -- the par-four 10th as Loyola started on the back nine -- but he was not over par for long as he evened his round with a birdie on the 564-yard par-five 13th.

The Patriot League Rookie of the Year then strung together five consecutive pars to make the turn even for the second round. He gave a stroke back with a bogey on the first hole (his 10th of the day), but he churned out four straight pars thereafter.

His best golf of the day came late as he birdied two of his last four holes, the Finley Course's sixth and eighth, to post the Greyhounds' best score of the tournament thus far.

Combined with his two-over par showing in Thursday's first round, Wall is tied for 32nd overall at 1-over 144 going into Saturday's final round.

As a team, Loyola moved up a position to 12th overall, posting a score of 5-over 293 on Friday. The Greyhounds sit three strokes back of 11th-place Penn State University.

Jimmy Dengler and Connor Flach both contributed scores of 1-over 73 on Thursday, and Matt Oshrine signed for a 4-over 76.

Dengler is tied for 42nd overall, while Flach is tied for 54th. Oshrine is tied for 68th, while Bart George, who posted a 5-over 77 Friday, is tied for 72nd.

Stanford University leads the team race at 11-under for the tournament. The Cardinal posted a second round total of 13-under, nine shots better than any other team.

The Greyhounds will wrap up play at the regional starting on Saturday morning.
