Senior Curtis Yonke continue his solid play as he currently sits in a seven-way tie for ninth place after recording a 3-under 141.

"We hope to capitalize and have a solid five scores tomorrow, with a couple of lower scores to move up and out of the middle of the pack," said head coach Tim Norris. "It was a decent round today, but when you have conditions like this, you have to really maximize your opportunities and we will look to do that tomorrow."
