SEVIERVILLE, Tenn. –
The University of Tennessee at Martin golf squad leaped four spots in the team standings after Round 2 of the Bobby Nichols Intercollegiate, shooting 6-under par as a team today at the Sevierville Golf Club River Course.

The Skyhawks shaved 18 strokes off their first round score, posting a 282 today. They now rank in sixth place out of 14 teams with a two-round total of 582 (+6). Round 1 leader Eastern Kentucky reclaimed their spot on top of the team standings with a 564 (-12) through 36 holes.

“Everybody played really well today,” UT Martin head coach Jerry Carpenter said. “Things just didn’t click for us yesterday but I was proud of how our guys came back and played today. Any time our team shoots 6-under par, you won’t hear any complaints from me.”

Nick Wolf accounted for the lowest score of any Skyhawk today, as his 68 tied for the fourth-best score out of 84 competitors.

Hunter Richardson continued his strong start to the tournament with a 69 today. Ross Redmont carded an even-par 72 while Tate Chumley dialed up a 73 to complete UT Martin’s team scoring.

Jack Story showed improvement from his first round score with a 76 today while Zach Haynes talled a three-shot improvement (75) from yesterday competing as an individual.

For the tournament, Richardson is in a tie for 10th place with a 142 (-2) while Wolf jumped up 28 spots from yesterday with a 144 (E). Redmont has compiled a 146 (+2) through 36 holes and is followed by Chumley (152, +8), Story (153, +9) and Haynes (153, +9) in the individual standings. Carson-Newman’s Tom Forster leads the tournament field with a 136 (-8) with 18 holes left to play.
