JOHNSTOWN, Penn. (June 14 2013) -- Steven Ihm gained some company atop the leaderboard at the 2013 Sunnehanna Amateur.

Tom Lovelady, of the NCAA Champion Alabama Tide, fired a red-hot 3-under 67 to jump into a share of the lead with Ihm entering Saturday's third round.

Ihm led outright with a 66 on Thursday. He shot 71 to keep pace with a surging field on Friday. Lovelady's 67 tied for the round of the day with former Penn State golfer and current Walker Cup hopeful Mike Miller. Miller bounced back from a 2-over 72 on Thursday to shoot his 67, which moved him into a tie for fourth place.

Stewart Jolly of Birmingham, who sat alone in second place after Round 1, shot an even par 70 Friday and is in third place, just one shot off the lead.

In fourth, Miller is joined by Matthew NeSmith, Patrick Newcomb, Cory Whitsett and Cameron Wilson.

The Sunnehanna Amateur features one of the season's top fields. Notable players include: Cal's Brandon Hagy (70-72, T15), Dykes Harbin (70-73, T24), Cal's Shotaro Ban (70-74, T31), Porter Cup winner Richy Werenski (71-74, T36) and four- time and defending U.S. Mid-Amateur champion Nathan Smith (73-73, T42).
