HOW IT HAPPENED:

  • Lynn (557) trailed by three strokes through 18 holes until the squad fired a six-under par 274 to grab a two-shot lead over Florida Southern (559).  Top-ranked Barry (562) is third followed by Lander (570) and South Carolina-Aiken (571) and Clayton State (571).
  • Toto Gana overcame a woeful start to improve by nine strokes for a second round 65.  He is tied for fourth with two of his teammates and is one-under for the tournament.
  • Agustin Errazuriz and Jorge Villar had matching rounds of 70-69 for a one-under 139, tying Gana for fourth place.  The trio is four shots back of Jorge Garcia from Barry.
  • Giovanni Manzoni is only a shot back of the top-10 with an even par 140 (69-71).
  • Carlos Bustos is the odd man out of the starting five with a score of 147.

  • Lynn is one of two teams to be under par after two rounds.
  • Gana's 65 is a tournament-best and also his career-best
