The Eagles, who entered Friday with an eight-shot advantage in the team scores, posted a 14-over 302 to jump out to a commanding 28-stroke edge with 612 strokes entering Saturday's third and final round. Christopher Newport remains in second place at 640, closely followed by York in third place at 644.

York's Tyler Newton is three shots back of the lead at 152 following a 75 on Friday. The Spartans' Morgan Uhlick (154), Christopher Newport's Will Snyder (155) and UMW's Phillip Manceri (155) round out the top five individuals, with ties.
