WEST POINT, Miss. - Junior Blake Morris posted a two-round score of 5-under par to lead the Ole Miss men’s golf team before play was suspended due to darkness in second round due of the Old Waverly Collegiate Championships Monday.

The Waterbury, Conn., native, who posted six birdies with three holes remaining in round two, is tied for first place among individuals with Troy’s Phillip Brennan.

As a team, the Rebels are in first place, firing a score of 4-under par before play was suspended. South Alabama is in second place after posting an even-par score.

"It was a long day, very windy and wet," head coach Ernest Ross said. "Play was delayed 90 minutes at the start. Blake Morris is playing well at 5-under. Everyone on our team has contributed so far. It will be a close reace tomorrow with several teams close to the lead. We need to keep our foot on the gas."

Junior Joe Lewis is tied for 18th place after notching a round-one score of 73. Sophomore Connor Davis tied for 30th place, posting a score of 3-over 75. Senior Tom Brown and freshman Noah West are tied for 35th place.

Play will resume tomorrow at 8:30 a.m. After the second round has been completed, round three will immediately follow.
