CONOVER, N.C. – Guilford College and Washington and Lee University remain tied atop the team standings after 36 holes of the Old Dominion Athletic Conference (ODAC) Men’s Golf Championships. The Quakers and Generals started the second round tied and shot matching scores of 303 Monday for matching 615 totals. They hold a 28-stroke edge over third-place Shenandoah University in the 10-team field.

Washington and Lee’s Conley Hurst shot an even-par 72 to take the lead in the 50-man field. He has a two-round 149, one stroke in front of Guilford freshman Tanner Gross, who shot his second straight 75 Monday and shares second place at 150. First-round leader Brian Burt of Hampden-Sydney College carded a 77 Monday for a 36-hole 150. Washington and Lee’s Cody Solomon bogeyed the 18th hole to finish with a 76 and holds fourth place at 151. Hampden-Sydney’s Rick O’Connell matched Hurst’s round-best 72 and holds a share of fifth place with Guilford’s Ty Palmer, who shot 73 Monday for a two-day total of 152.

Guilford, the three-time defending tourney champions, has four students among the top-13 individuals. In addition to Gross and Palmer, Quakers’ senior Dallas Page holds seventh place after Monday’s 78. Guilford junior Drew Thompson bounced back from an opening-round 82 with a 77 Monday that included a team-high four birdies. He sits 13th on the individual leaderboard at 159.
Four Generals stand among the top-11 contestants. Taylor Stagg delivered a 78 Monday and holds 10th place at 157, one shot in front of teammate Patrick Clossin. Clossin shaved four strokes off his first-round score with a 77.

Shenandoah retained third place in the team standings, thanks to the play of Brennan Lloyd and Doc Schulte. Lloyd birdies the par-five 18th hole and had the Hornets’ low score (76), which moved him into eighth place in the individual standings with a two-round 155. Schulte carded a 78 Monday for a 36-hole 155. The Hornets have an eight-shot edge over fourth-place Hampden-Sydney entering Tuesday’s final round.

The teams found overcast conditions with a light breeze and temperatures in the upper 60s Monday at the par-72, 6,944-yard Jones Course layout at the Rock Barn Golf & Spa Resort. With storms in Tuesday’s forecast, the squads are scheduled to tee off the first and 10th tees beginning at 8:00 a.m.
