Freshman Adam Svensson is tied for fifth at 3-under 141, senior Marcus Segerstrom is a stroke back, tied for seventh, and junior Scott Smyers tied for ninth at 1-under 143. Smyers fired a 3-under 69, catapulted by an eagle, in the second round. Segerstrom had 13 birdies, and Svensson 11 through the first two rounds.

Barton College is third, one stroke behind the leaders at 1-over 577, while Cal State-Monterey Bay is tied with the Bucs at 4-over.

Barry and Barton College each made a tournament-leading 42 birdies. Nova had 39 and Abilene Christian 37.

Colorado-Colorado Springs' Kevin Witte shot 67-69 -- 136 to find a spot atop the individual leaderboard with a one-stroke lead at 8-under.
