WALLACE, North Carolina - Freshman Dylan Harris (38-34) matched his season-low round, shooting an even-par 72, and is in 14th place overall at the River Landing Intercollegiate after 18 holes on Friday. The Seahawks are in 12th after carding a 314.

Liberty leads the 12-team field by three strokes over ACC schools North Carolina State and Maryland. Robert Karlsson of Liberty is tied with Maryland's Jordan Sweet for the tournament lead at four-under.

The tournament format has changed to 27 holes on Friday and the final 27 on Saturday. Rain in the southeastern area of North Carolina forced the adjustments.

Payne McLeod (37-36=73) leads the Seahawks at one-over and tied for 26th.

Stefan Brewer (T56, 38-39=77), Taylor Zimmerman (T70, 40-40=80) and Josh Woodfox (76, 42-42=84) round out the starters for UNCW. Thomas Bass was disqualified.

Joining Harris in competing as individuals are Patrick Sawrey (T26, 36-37=73) and Ryan Nagy (T64, 40-39=79).

The tournament concludes on Saturday.
