The Roadrunners carded an even-par 288 to claim the first-round lead, but they fell to six shots off the 36-hole pace set by UALR (591) with a 309 in a second round buffeted by 25-35 mile-per-hour winds.

A trio of Roadrunners are tied for 19th in the individual standings. Garrison Lackey opened with a one-under 71 and followed that with a 79 and is at six-over 150 with 18 holes remaining. Ryan Werre fired a 150 (74-76) and J.J. Lindsey turned rounds of 73 and 77.
Brett Hogan registered UTSA's low round of the day with a two-under 70 on the first 18 and he is tied for 25th at seven-over 151. Stanton Tondre is one shot behind at 152 (75-77) in a tie for 30th.
Competing as an individual, Mitchell Griffin posted the Roadrunners' top 36-hole score with a four-over 148 (74-74) and he is tied for eighth.
Northern Illinois' Bryce Emory leads the individual race after recording a one-under 143 (71-72) and he is the only player in the red through the event's first 36 holes.
