HUTCHINSON, Kan. — Stanford topped the leaderboard Saturday in the suspended second round of the NCAA championships, while the Cardinal’s Cameron Wilson and South Carolina’s Will Starke shared the lead in the individual standings.

After rain wiped out more than eight hours of play Thursday at Prairie Dunes, Stanford had a 13-under 267 in the second round for a 12-under 548 total.

That left the Cardinal with an 11-shot lead over Georgia Tech, the leader of the four colleges from Georgia.

Former Harrison High School standout Ollie Schniederjans shot rounds of 71-65 and sits in a tie for sixth in the individual standings. The Yellow Jackets are currently in a tie for 10th place with UCLA at 1-under.

Seth Reeves shot 66-72 for Georgia Tech and is 2-under par.

The top eight teams after today’s third round is completed will advance to the eight-team match-play tournament, which will determine the national champion.

Tyler Gruca and Davin White each shot 1-under 69s, and Georgia State sits in a tie for 16th at 5-over par. The Panthers, however, have yet to start their second round.

Through two rounds, Georgia is 13-over and in 25th place. Joey Garber shot rounds of 74-68 and is tied for 69th to lead the Bulldogs.

Kennesaw State is 14-over par and is in 26th place, but the Owls still have their second round to play.

Teremoana Beaucousin shot 1-under 69, while Kelby Burton shot 74, Austin Vick 75, and Jimmy Beck and Chris Guglielmo each shot 76.

Defending champion Alabama was tied with South Carolina for second at 8 under. The Crimson Tide had a 2-under 278 in the second round, but the Gamecocks had yet to start the second round.

Starke opened with a 6-under 64, and Wilson also was 6 under after rounds of 71 and 63. Stanford star Patrick Rodgers was in the group at 5 under after rounds of 67 and 68.
