NCAA Div. III: Rain halts third round
Editor's Note: Third-round play was suspended due to rain and thunderstorms. The round will be continued Friday. With roughly half of the round complete, Schreiner University remains in the lead.
GREENSBORO, N.C. (May 14, 2014) -- The new kids on the block look to upset the battle- tested veterans at the NCAA DIII Championship. So far, they are pulling it off.

Schreiner University leads 2012 champion Oglethorpe University by four strokes and 2013 champion University of Texas at Tyler by eight. In only the third appearance at the national championship in the team’s history, they have taken control of the tournament. Junior Cheyne Kendall has paced the Mountaineers this week, shooting consecutive rounds of 70, good for a tie for second.

Being held at the East and West Courses of the Grandover Resort, the layouts have played tough for the field but easy for 10th- ranked Brian Burt. Burt has played lights out for Hampden-Sydney College, posting scores of 67-69 to take a four stroke lead at eight- under. He only has two bogeys for the tournament thus far.

Martin Odegard of the University of Dubuque made a hole-in-one on the 12th hole of the East Course today, but not even an ace could keep his team from missing the cut. The top 15 teams advanced to rounds three and four, with the cut coming at 23-over.

Palmer Cup selection Anthony Maccaglia of Oglethorpe jumped from T62 to T16 today with a 70, but still stands nine behind the leader at one-over overall.
