North Florida, ranked 114th, held on to its lead after two rounds to win the team title, shooting 872 (300-282-290).

Sebastian Soderberg carded an even par round of 72 and Charlie Winegardner shot 72. The duo finished the 54-hole events with 223 strokes to tie for 21st. Soderberg only had four pars over the first two rounds, but carded five birdies Monday, including three over the final seven holes, to move up 18 spots to 21st. Winegardner not only matched his first round one-over par 72 with a 72 Monday, but he did so in almost identical fashion, registering 13 pars, three bogeys and two birdies. Like Soderberg, he finished with a birdie on the par 5 ninth to move up 10 spots tto 21st.

Ben Wheeler tied for 35th, shooting 77-74-75 for a 13-over 226. The freshman had a setback on his ninth hole, hitting his drive in the water for a double bogey. However, he rallied to birdie his 10th hole. After a bogey on his 13th hole, he closed his round like Soderberg and Winegardner with a birdie on his final hole., Andrew Dorn and Kevin Vanden Heuvel both tied for 51st. Dorn, who played his final 10 holes at one-under par (nine pars and a birdie), showed improvement each round, shooting 80-77-74 for a total of 18-over 231.
