Galloway, N.J. – Freshman Zahkai Brown shaved five strokes from his opening-round total, and continued to pace the CSU men’s golf team by shooting an even-par 71 and moving into a tie for 13th place at the NCAA Northeastern Regional tournament at the 7,022-yard Galloway National Golf Club.
Behind Brown’s solid Day 2 effort, CSU’s squad combined for a 6-over 290, 19 strokes better than the team’s opening round. However, the Rams were unable to move into the top five, where they must finish after tomorrow’s final round to advance to the NCAA championship tournament. No. 4-seeded Tennessee sits atop the team standings with a two-round score of 583 (+15), followed by No. 2 Alabama (+20), No. 9 Virginia (+21), No. 5 Wake Forest (+26) and No. 3 Illinois (+27), rounding out the top five. The Rams are sixth with a two-round total of 599 (+31).

Junior Bryce Hanstad rounded out the scoring for the Rams with a 3-over 74, and is tied with classmate Riley Arp for 49th with a two-round total of 156 (+14).
