CHINO HILLS, Calif. — The No. 22 La Verne men's golf team stumbled out of the gate in the second round of the 2017 SCIAC Championships on Monday but finished strong to retain its overall lead.
The Leopards shot 299 as a team and dropped into a tie for second place with Redlands for the tournament. Claremont-Mudd-Scripps shot 291 on the day to shoot to the top but the Leopards remain four strokes ahead in the overall standings, which should make for a thrilling final round on Tuesday.
Jason Brown, who shot a 7-over 79 in the first round, bounced back to card a 1-over 73 to lead the Leopards today.
Conner Davis shot a 2-over 74 for La Verne's second low score of the day.
The Leopards will tee off starting at 9:06 a.m. tomorrow.
