HOUSTON — Led by Brett Hogan's two-under-par day, the UTSA men's golf team is in second place after the first two rounds of the Rice Intercollegiate, which opened on Monday at Westwood Golf Club (par 72/7,184 yards).

The Roadrunners, who have three players in the top 10, carded rounds of three-under 285 and four-over 292 for a 36-hole tally of one-over 577, and they sit five shots behind Florida Atlantic (286-286—572) and three ahead of host Rice (290-290—580) in the 14-team field.

Hogan opened the tournament with a season-best four-under 68 and followed that with a two-over 74, and the freshman from Calgary, Alberta, is in fifth place with a 142 with 18 holes remaining. Hogan registered eight birdies in round one, with six coming on the front nine en route to a 32 in posting his first career sub-70 round. He added a pair of birdies in the second round to give him 10 for the tournament. Hogan is five strokes off the pace set by Florida Atlantic's Richard Donegan, who fired a seven-under 71-66—137, and Rice's Jeff Wibawa, who posted a 70-67—137.

UTSA received a strong effort from the rest of its lineup, as four players are in the top 18 of the individual standings, including the top-10 trio.

Stanton Tondre is two shots back of Hogan in a tie for sixth place after turning in an even-par 72-72—144. The senior Medina Valley High product circled seven numbers on his two scorecards on Monday.

Ryan Werre opened with a two-under 70 and followed with a 75, and the junior from Redcliff, Alberta, is in a tie for ninth place at one-over 145.

J.J. Lindsey is tied for 18th at two-over 146 after he fought back from a three-over 75 with a one-under 71. The Adkins, Texas, freshman posted four birdies and eagled the par-five sixth in the opening round.

Garrison Lackey is tied for 52nd (76-77—153) and Reed Stegall is tied for 64th (81-74—155) while competing as an individual.

The final round tees off at 8 a.m. on Tuesday.
