RALEIGH, N.C. (May 15, 2014) -- In a year that has been marred by injury, Richy Werenski picked the best time to shine.

The 2012 Porter Cup champion is 5-under through 17 holes to lead Georgia Tech to the top spot after the first day of action at the NCAA Men's East Regional at Raleigh's Lonnie Pool Golf Course at NC State.

Play halted at 12:41 p.m. after weather came into the area and will be completed at 11:30 on Friday.

Werenski's pace is a shot ahead of teammate Bo Andrews', who is 4-under after 17 holes. He's tied alongside Washington's Trevor Simsby, who powered the Huskies to second place behind Georgia Tech.

The Yellow Jackets received some spectacular play with only one player over par when play was suspended. Ollie Schniederjans is 3-under and Seth Reeves is 2-under.

For Washington, Simsby's second-place 4-under is supported by solid efforts from Jonathan Sanders (3-under), Corey Pereira (2-under) and Cheng-Tsung Pan (1-under).

In the team race, Georgia Tech is four shots up on the Huskies. South Alabama (5-under) is third while Texas Tech, Texas A&M and Wake Forest sit tied for fourth after Day 1.
