No. 8-ranked North Florida remains atop the leaderboard after firing a second round 286 (-2), which was the lowest score recorded by a team this week. The Ospreys (287-286—573) sit at 3-under-par and own a 10-shot lead over the Bucs (288-295—583) and No. 41 Kennesaw State (291-292—583).

Florida Gulf Coast (+20) is in fourth, while Mercer rounds out the top-five at +24. USC Upstate (+25) is in sixth followed by Stetson (+26), Jacksonville (+31), Lipscomb (+38) and Belmont (+39).

Sean Dale (68-69—137) is now in the lead by himself on the individual leaderboard at 7-under overall after firing his second consecutive round in the 60s. His teammate Kevin Aylwin is in second at 5-under, while Sam Ryder of Stetson (-2) and ETSU freshman Scott Gibson (Dumfries, Scotland) (-1, 73-70—143) are the only other players in the field below par for the tournament. ETSU redshirt senior Rhys Enoch (Cornwall, England), who was tied for the lead after round one, remains in contention as he sits in fifth at even-par (68-76—144).

Meanwhile, sophomore Spencer Lawson (Raleigh, N.C.) is the third member of the Buccaneer squad in the top-six in the 50-player field at +1 (70-75—145).
