Round 2 Interview: Princeton's Quinn Prchal

OWINGS MILLS, Md. -- Yale carded a second-round 291 to take the lead on the second day of the play at the 2013 Ivy League Men's Golf Championship, but with five teams separated by four shots, Sunday could shape up to be quite the finish.

The Bulldogs improved their score by 10 shots on Saturday, including a second-round 72 by junior Sam Bernstein, who remained tied for second in the individual standings.

Speaking of the individual standings, the race for individual medalist honors is just as close as the team standings as eight golfers are within five shots of the lead heading into the final round. Penn junior Max Marsico held on to his lead, shooting a second-round 74 to sit at two-over par 142 after 36 holes. He is one shot better than Bernstein and Princeton junior Greg Jarmas, who matched Bernstein's 72. Marsico and Jarmas will play together for the second-consecutive day on Sunday. Harvard freshman Un Cho is three shots back after also posting a 72 on Saturday in near-perfect conditions.

Columbia sophomore Brandon Jowers made the biggest move of the day, thanks to his low-round of 69. He jumped from 22nd place to fifth and is four shots off the lead, tied with Dartmouth senior James Pleat. Pleat shot his second consecutive round of 73.

Penn senior P.J. Fielding and Dartmouth sophomore Charlie Edler are five shots back in a tie for seventh with a 36-hole total of 147.

Yale freshman Joe Willis and Princeton freshman Quinn Prchal both made big jumps on the leaderboard, as well, in the second day. Willis rebounded from an opening round 78 to shoot 70 on Saturday, moving from 26th place to ninth. Prchal also shot 78 on the first day, but bounced back to shoot 71 on Saturday and moved from 26th to a tie for 10th.

After Yale's 36-hole total of 592, Columbia and Penn are tied for second at 594. Princeton is fourth at 595, followed by Dartmouth in fifth at 596. Harvard is sixth, followed by Cornell and Brown.

Sunday's final round gets underway at 8 a.m. with tee times off both Nos. 1 and 10. Live scoring of the final round will be available once again on
