HENDERSON, Nev. — J.J. Lindsey is tied for the individual lead with two other players and UTSA sits in fourth place after the two rounds of play at the Western Athletic Conference Championship, which continued on Tuesday at Rio Secco Golf Club (par 72/7,313 yards).

Lindsey entered the day with a one shot lead after registering a three-under 69 on Monday. The freshman from Adkins fell back to the field with a four-over 76 and now is tied for first at one-over 145 with New Mexico State's duo of Kenneth Fadke and Willie Hogan with 18 holes remaining.

The Roadrunners carded a 311 and are tied with Utah State at 28-over 604, three strokes behind San Jose State and UT Arlington, who are tied for second at 601. New Mexico State leads the 10-team field at eight-over 584. Denver (606), Idaho (607), Texas State (610), Louisiana Tech (615) and Seattle (623) round out the team standings.

Garrison Lackey followed Monday's 70 with a 79 and joins four other players in a tie for ninth at five-over 149. Brett Hogan (79-78—157) and Ryan Werre (75-82—157) both are tied for 37th, while Stanton Tondre is tied for 43nd (81-78—159) to round out the UTSA's lineup.

"It was a tough day on the course, but in team golf, you are never out of it," head coach John Knauer said. "I'm happy that J.J. and Garrison have a chance to win individually. We just need all five guys to play well and then let the chips fall where they may."

Wednesday's final round is scheduled to tee off at 9 a.m. (CT).
