BLANCO, Texas -- Texas Lutheran senior Colin Uecker holds the two-round lead at the 2019 Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference Men's Golf Championship, and the Bulldogs are in contention for the team title, sitting second, after play Monday at Vaaler Creek Golf Club.

Uecker (Kerrville/Tivy) followed his 1-under 71 in round one Monday morning with a 2-under 70 in the second round Monday afternoon.

With a score of 3-under, Uecker (pronounced EE-ker) has a three-shot lead over Emilio Montalvo of the University of Dallas.

The Crusaders posted a 295 in round one and a 295 in round two for a Monday total of 590.

TLU is second after a 301 and a 296. The Bulldogs' two-round total sits at 597.

Southwestern, the three-time defending champions of the SCAC, is in third place - nine shots behind TLU and 16 shots behind Dallas.

Schreiner (617), Trinity (627), Centenary (650), and Johnson & Wales - Denver (699) round out the conference tournament field.
