Sand Sharks star Jacob Thomas is in position to claim some hardware of his own after shooting a 7-under 139 (73-66). The junior has a one-stroke lead over teammate Dawson Peters and Dalton State’s Ben Rebne. Peters also performed exceptionally in Monday’s 36 holes of play. The Iowa native recorded a 4-under 138 (71-69) to sit one off his teammate’s lead.
The other Sand Shark contributions came from Skyler Sicoli (71-78, T15), Christopher Hagenauer (73-79, T21), and Jonas Demant (80-86, T43).
The Sand Sharks look to keep the hardware at home Tuesday. The players are set to tee off at 8:30 a.m.
