AUSTIN, Texas - Day two is complete from the NCAA Austin Regional and the UMKC Men's Golf team stands tied for 10th overall with a 29-over par 597 (295/302). The Roos are tied with St. Mary's (Calif.) for the 10th spot, while host school The University of Texas holds a commanding 16-stroke team lead (278-274/552) from the Golf Club. The third and final round occurs Wednesday with UMKC starting their day at 8:55 a.m. CT on Hole No. 10.
Sophomore Vitek Novak continues to lead UMKC after a 74 today. He had the most birdies with four -- and eight for the tournament -- and is now tied with teammate junior McCain Schellhardt for 27th place overall (72-74/146, +4).
The bright side Tuesday was the play of sophomore Maxence Catherine, who shaved off two strokes from his first round play Monday. After a 77 yesterday, Catherine posted a four-over par 75 today. He was overall consistent, especially on his back-nine with a birdie on the par-four No. 13 ending the final nine holes even. Catherine, who was the only Roo to drop strokes from Monday, stands tied for 51st overall (77-75/152).
Senior Francois Lagraulet also was a highlight with an eagle on the par-five No. 14. He is one of five players in Austin to accomplish the feat. Overall, Lagraulet is tied for 62nd overall with a 156 (76-80).
The Roos are trying to advance to their first ever NCAA Championship, but will need a big effort in the third and final round. The low five teams and the low individual not on those teams from each regional will advance to the NCAA Championship, May 24-29 at Blessings Golf Club in Fayetteville, Ark.
UMKC is appearing in its third NCAA Regional in the last four years and fifth overall. The highest team finish was 11th in the 2018 Regional in Norman, Okla.
