THE INSIDE STORY
• Ryan Sember's round of 71 was seven strokes better than his best round as a freshman.
• Ryan McGarry's round of 70 established not only a low round for him but a low round for any McDaniel player this season.
• It's the known time in program history that two Green Terror golfers carded a sub-par score in the same round.
