Delaware sophomore Corey Wagner (at right) is tied for fifth place in the individual standings after firing a one under par 34-36-70 on the par 71, 6,528-yard course at the U.S. Naval Academy Golf Club, the lowest round of his Blue Hen career.
Junior Ben Conroy is right behind Wagner, tied for sixth place after carding an even par 34-37-71, while freshman Fraser Graham is tied for 11th place following a one over par 36-36-72.
