The Phoenix started off the day with a one-over par 285, but regrouped with a four-under 280 during the afternoon. Elon is currently 10 strokes off the lead with a minus-three 565. Drexel and Morehead State are atop the table with a 13-under 555, and Gardner-Webb is right behind them in third with a 12-under 556.

Lukes is five strokes behind the overall leader, Gardner-Webb’s Jake Scruggs (-13, 129). Bronson Myers is also below par as the freshman started the day with a two-over 73 and rebounded with a three-under 68. The Columbia, S.C. native is tied for second at 141 (-1). Max Ferrari and Cristian Del Vecchio are both tied for 31st with a one-over 143, Dustin Blank is tied for 43rd at 144 (+2), and Josef Dransfeld is tied for 51st at 145 (+3).
