No. 3 Ogelthorpe trails Methodist entering Day 2 at Callaway Intercollegiate

Junior Anthony Maccaglia was the other Petrel to shoot an under-par round Saturday, tying for fifth with a one-under 71. Senior Anthony Amodeo came in with a four-over 76, tying him for 24th, while senior Hayden Jones and freshman Mack Paulson tied for 31st with opening rounds of 77, five strokes over par.

Freshman Chase Feagin actually tied for ninth on Day One while golfing as an individual, recording a one-over par round of 73. Junior Will Morrow also participated as an individual, tying for 74th after an opening-round 83.

The Stormy Petrels will go for the win Sunday, when they again take the Callaway Gardens course in an attempt to overtake Methodist for the title in their first full event of the spring.
