Schreiner extends to four-stroke lead at national championships

GREENSBORO, N.C. -- Led by junior Cheyne Kendall's second consecutive round of 70 (-2), Schreiner shot a second  round 293 to open a four-stroke lead midway through the 2014 NCAA Division III national championships. Kendall's total matches his 36-hole total from one year ago and his second place standing also is identical to last year. 

Junior Jimmy Keener shot a one-over-par 73 and is at 143 (-1) through two days. He is in sixth place individually. The Mountaineers, ranked No. 15 coming into the tournament, also got 75's from junior Zach Oliver and sophomore Phil Stewart. Both are at 149 and are tied for 51st place. Freshman Matt McClung shot 76 and is at 147 for 29th place.

Schreiner battled nerves early, going +5 on the very first hole but settled down and played even par the rest of the way on Wednesday. Kendall double-bogeyed his first hole but made five birdies before closing with a bogey on his final hole.

Oglethorpe is in second place, four shots back, followed by defending national champion Texas-Tyler in third, eight strokes behind (586). Transylvania is fourth at 587.  Methodist, who was just one shot behind the Mountaineers at the beginning of the day, shot 306 and is in sixth place.

Fellow SCAC member Southwestern also made the 36-hole cut and is tied for 11th place at 595.
