NEW LONDON, N.C. - Wake Forest edged ahead of North Carolina in the race for team honors and the Deacons' Bill Haas stretched his lead in the battle for the individual crown after the second round of the 50th annual Atlantic Coast Conference men's golf championship being played over the Old North State Club at Uwharrie Point.

University of Maryland improved 12 shots over its opening-round score and is in eighth place heading into the final 18 holes on Sunday. The Terps are just three shots out of sixth place. The Terps are paced by true freshman John Eades, who is in a tie for 15th place with a 36-hole score of 148. Eades, who had just one bogey and 17 pars on Friday, shot a three-over score of 75 on Friday. Senior co-captain John Moheyer shot his second consecutive 75 and is in a tie for 20th place.

Maryland's other three players - each of whom shot 80 or higher in the opening round - improved on their Friday scores during Saturday's action. Tim Kane, who had an 80 on Friday, had the Terps' low score on Saturday, carding a two-over 74. Jeff Spradlin improved seven shots from his opening 83, turning in a 76 on Saturday. Dan MacDonald, who had an 85 on Friday, improved 10 shots by shooting a 75 on Saturday.

Wake Forest's Haas, a junior from Green, S.C., who grabbed the individual lead after Friday's opening round with a three-under par 69, fired a second-round four-under 68 for a two-day total 137 and a four-shot lead over three played who are tied for second place with 141's.

In the battle for team honors, Wake Forest has a one-shot lead over the Tar Heels, who enjoyed a three-shot lead over the Deacons after the opening round.
