STATESBORO, Ga. - Jason Roets vaulted his way into the top-10 after the second round of the Schenkel Invitational while the No. 25 North Texas men's golf team remained in a tie for eighth place.

Roets played one of his best rounds of the year as he posted a 2-under par 70 and moved up the leaderboard into a tie for 10th place. The Mean Green as a team shot a second round of 6-over 294 and has a score of 590 through 36 holes of play.

No. 4 Alabama took the lead in the second round shooting a 7-under par. They lead No. 6 Texas by two strokes heading into the final round.  

Roets got off to a roaring start as he was 4-under par after the first nine holes, including an eagle on the par-5 seventh hole. The more difficult back nine got Roets with two bogeys, but he sits at 1-under par for the tournament.

Carlos Ortiz is 1-over par after two rounds after battling for an even-par round of 72. Ortiz was 2-under after the first nine holes, which like Roets, featured an eagle on the par-5 seventh hole. After a double bogey and bogey, Ortiz settled back down with a birdie on the 12th hole and then six straight pars to post the 72. He is tied for 19th place.

Gonzalo Rubio had his second straight 3-over par 75 on the day. Rubio had one birdie in his round and is tied for 42nd place.

It was a second round struggle for Rodolfo Cazaubon. After opening at 1-under par on the front nine, he had a difficult back nine. Cazaubon had only two pars on the back nine and seven bogeys as he shot a second round of 78. He fell into a tie with teammate Curtis Donahoe who shot a second round of 77 and both players have a 153 after two rounds.
