MOBILE, Ala. - Junior Blake Morris and sophomore Connor Davis each fired two-round totals of 143 to lead the Rebels on day one of the Mobile Bay Intercollegiate hosted by the University of South AlabamaMonday.

Morris is once again in contention for the individual title after posting three birdies in the morning round. In the afternoon round, Morris notched six birdies and fired a 3-under 69.
