As a team, Vincennes University shot 302 Wednesday, the second round of the four-round tournament which was a shot better than the 301 the team carded during Tuesday’s first round.

Sophomore Jacob Bartley (Jasper HS) carded a second round of 74 to equal his first round 74.  Jacob is third overall individually with a 36-hole total of 148.  Ian Weyer is sixth overall individually with 150 (he carded a 78 on day one of the tournament Tuesday.

A third member of the VU team is Ian’s older brother Cameron, a sophomore.  Cam’s two-day total of 159 (75-84) places him 30th overall individually.

Despite the blustery conditions Wednesday, VU actually extended its team lead over Minnesota State Community College to 13 strokes (605-618).  CLICK HERE FOR TEAM RESULTS AFTER ROUND TWO
