The Cavaliers posted rounds of 10-under 278 and 3-under 285.

Freshman David Morgan led UVA by shooting 8-under 136 and finished the day in third place. He posted rounds of 5-under 67 and 3-under 69. He got off to a fast start, playing his opening nine holes at 5-under par.

Senior Thomas Walsh, the 2018 ACC individual champion, is in sixth place at 5-under 139. He shot rounds of 69 and 70. Senior Ashton Poole is in 28th place at 1-over 145. Poole shot 71 during the morning round and 74 in the afternoon. Junior Andrew Orischak is in 40th place at 146 after shooting 1-over 73 in both rounds.

UVA sophomore Jimmie Massie shot 81 in the first round. Freshman Jack Montague subbed into the lineup for Massie for the second round and shot 1-under 71 to be a counter toward the team score.
