Kennesaw State, which is ranked 40th in the country, leads the tournament at tournament at three-over par.
Senior Mark MacDonald and sophomore Jack Sparling were the top individual performers for Miami on Sunday. MacDonald shot two rounds of 74, while Sparling shot a 73 in the morning and a 75 in the afternoon. Both of them are currently tied for 16th at four-over par.
"I think we got off to a solid start in the morning, but struggled in the afternoon,” said head coach Zac Zedrick. “There were just too many instances today where we would compound mistakes, follow-up a bogey with another bogey or turn a bogey into something worse. Even though we haven't been able to play at home, I really feel like we're in a place physically where we could be playing much better. We just need to do a little better job staying relaxed and not pressing if we make a bogey or two."
The Colleton River Collegiate concludes with one final round of 18 holes on Monday.
