Burlington, Iowa - After advancing to the NJCAA National Tournament for the seventh time in ten seasons, the Cape Fear Community College men's golf team sits in 17th on the leaderboard after two days of action at the Spirit Hollow Golf Course in Burlington, Iowa.

Five Sea Devils are competing at the event alongside 22 teams and Cape Fear rebounded after shooting a combined 326 on day one to post a 312 on Wednesday.

He rallied on 18 after back-to-back bogeys to finish the day with a three-over-par performance and a combined 156.

Tanner Pearson and Zach Joines each closed out at 77, while Jace Durham and Broc Howerton hit an 83 and 86, respectively.
