GREENVILLE, S.C. -- Virginia Tech shot the best round of round two on Saturday, a three-under-par 285 and has moved into third place with a two-day total of 584 in the Furman Intercollegiate at the 6,800 yard, par-72 Furman University Golf Club in Greenville, S.C.

Junior Brendon de Jonge (Harare, Zimbabwe) has taken the lead in the event after shooting a second round three-under-par 69. It was the only sub-70 round of the day. Senior Brian Krusoe (Northfield, Ohio) is tied for 13th place, with a three-over-par 74-73=147. Senior Johnson Wagner (Garrison, N.Y.) is tied for 20th place with a four-over-par 77-71=148 and junior Chris McKeel (Wilson, N.C.) is tied for 29th, at six-over-par 77-73=150. Sophomore Ryan Stinnett (Amherst, Va.) is tied for 62nd at 82-72=154. Sophomore Matt Hollerbach (Tulsa, Okla.), competing in the event as an individual, is tied for 77th place with a 78-79=157.

The Hokies entered the round tied for sixth place at 299, but today's 285 moved Tech into third place, just one stroke behind co-leaders Furman and Coastal Carolina, which lead the event at seven-over-par 583.
