Defending champion UT Arlington completed the first round of the San Diego Intercollegiate on Monday and sits tied for 10th going into the completion of the second round Tuesday.
Play for round 2 was suspended due to darkness. The results from round 1 are the official standings, as of Monday. Teams will finish the second Tuesday morning and begin round 3 with a shotgun start to complete the tournament.
The Mavericks shot a 19-over-par 307 in the first round, with Hunter Brown leading the way with a plus-1 73 on the par 72, 7,033-yard course at the San Diego Country Club. Brown was the only UTA player to complete his second round, carding an 80 to move to 8-over.
"It was tough today trying to score the golf ball," UT Arlington coach Jay Rees said. "I'm disappointed we did not handle the adverse conditions better. We must get better tomorrow."
Brad Lyle is taking part in the tourney as an individual competitor. He shot a 79 in the first round.
The Mavericks tied for the tournament title last year with SMU. McConnell is the defending tournament medalist. Washington was leading the 15-team event at the conclusion of the first round with a 284.
