SAN ANTONIO, Texas – UT Arlington made a charge in the second round before settling into 13th place at the Lone Star Invitational.
The Mavericks had moved up the leaderboard after the first round led by solid play throughout the lineup. Jake Argento leads the way, posting a two-round total of 1-under-par 143 at Briggs Ranch Golf Club.
UTA posted a 588 (296-292) and is only five shots out of seventh place.
"We did some good things," UT Arlington coach Jay Rees said. "There are a lot of close scores on the leaderboard. We just need to do the little things better. We wasted too many shots in each round.
"Jake Argento did the best today, but we are trying to get five good scores tomorrow."
New Mexico leads the 15-team field. New Mexico's Victor Perez and Louisiana Tech's Travis Wilmore sit atop the player leaderboard at 7 under.
The third and final round is Tuesday, with the shotgun start at 8:30 a.m.
