The Eagles finished runner-up out of 15 teams, shooting a second-round score of one-under par 287 that left them with a two-day effort of 583, eight strokes off the pace of No. 2-ranked and host Huntingdon College (289-286—575).

Senior Connor Yakubov was Emory's top team performer on Tuesday, shooting a two-under par 70 that included birdies on Nos. 16, 17 and 18. It represented the eighth time this year in 19 rounds that he had shot par or better.  Junior Matt Organisak carded a one-under par 71 while Eric Yiu posted an even par 72.  Junior Sam Galloway rounded out the squad's scorers with a 74.  Freshman Logan Ryan checked in with a 79 while senior Anthony Muscato, playing as an individual, registered a two-under par 70.
