N O T E S

Miguel Echavarria's three-under 68 in the second round equaled his career-best single-round tally. He had a 68 on two other occasions -- second round of the 2011 Wolverine Intercollegiate and the second round of the 2010 Rod Myers Invitational.

Miguel Echavarria's three-under 68 in the second round equals the lowest round by a Wolverine this season. He tied Noori Hyun's three-under 68 fired in the second round of the Fightin' Irish Gridiron Classic.

Chris O'Neill shot a career-best two-under 69 in the first round. He followed with a one-under 70 in the second. Both rounds topped his previous best of 72 shot in the first and second rounds of the Windon Memorial Classic.

Noori Hyun was disqualified from the first round for using an altered piece of equipment after his putter was bent and he used it after he fixed it. He was able to continue play, with his scores for the second round and tomorrow's third round being allowed to count towards the Wolverines' team total.
