LOVELAND, Ohio - The University of Maryland had four players shoot at least 4-under-par rounds of 68, while Tyler Witman finished off back-to-back 67s to tie for the lead in Monday's second round of the Xavier Invitational men's golf tournament being held at the Oasis Golf Club.

Maryland had a tournament-record team score of 271 in the second round, making up an eight-shot deficit after the first round and taking a three-stroke lead into Tuesday's final round of the 54-hole event with a 553 total. Austin Peay took the first-round lead with a 274, but shot 282 in the second round. Host Xavier opened with a 276, but was in third at 560 after 36 holes.

Witman shot a 67 for a 134 total, while Matt Schall, Hunter Bendall and Tully Coyle each shot 68s to account for Maryland's outstanding team total. J.J. Occi had a 1-over 73 in the fifth spot to help the other players shoot their low rounds.

In the morning round, the Terrapins shot 282, finishing the opening 18 holes in a tie for sixth. Witman was in a tie for fourth individually before rallying with his second 67 to finish the day tied atop the individual standings with Jason Kokrak of Xavier, who was also at 134 after opening with a 65.
