LAGRANGE, Ga. -- After a tough first round on Thursday, the Covenant men's golf team saw improvement on day two of the USA South Tournament at the Highland Country Club in LaGrange. Covenant sits in ninth place overall in the event.

The Scots took 15 strokes off their day one score with a 333 in Friday's second round. Greensboro leads the event heading into Saturday's final round, while Methodist and Huntingdon are second and third, respectively.

Nathan Hawkins leads the Scots with a 153 through two rounds. The freshman shot a 74 on Friday as he collected a pair of birdies and finished even-par on a tough back nine.
