Abstract

SNEADS FERRY‚ N.C. − The Kennesaw State University golf team continued to blister North Shore Country Club on Tuesday‚ matching the school record set a day earlier to vault from fourth to second in the NCAA Division II Southeast Regional.



The Owls posted their second straight 283 behind the strong play of junior Luke Stephan‚ who stands at 7−under 137 following a second−round 69. Kennesaw State's 566 total trails only the 552 put up by USC Aiken‚ which carded a 282 on Tuesday.



KSU currently holds a four−stroke cushion over Frances Marion (570)‚ which slipped from second to third in the wake of a second−round 295. Next is Armstrong Atlantic (574)‚ which fell from third to fourth with a 293.



The tournament concludes Wednesday‚ with the champion earning an automatic berth in the national tournament.



Individually‚ Armstrong Atlantic's Nick Cowper‚ a graduate of Harrison High School in Kennesaw‚ holds a 1−stroke lead over USC Aiken's Lee Harper thanks to a second−round 70 that put him at 11−under 133 for the tournament.



KSU golfers making their presence felt Tuesday included senior Thomas Baker of Canton‚ whose 2−under−par 70 left him at 142 for the tournament.
