OKATIE, S.C. – The DePaul golf team slipped into fifth place and is two shots out of third place after carding a 304 in the second round of the BIG EAST Conference Championship at a picturesque Callawassie Island Club on Monday.

“We are not doing anything wrong, but we are not getting anything going either,” head coach Betty Kaufmann said after the round.  “We have had plenty of birdie opportunities, but we are just not converting so when we make a mistake it adds up.”

James Lelliott and Jan Juelicher tallied the Blue Demons low-round of the day – a 75.  

Lelliott took three strokes off his score on Sunday and moved into a tie for 15th with Seton Hall’s Cory Wilson. Lelliott tallied three birdies including one of 18 to close out his day of competition.

Juelicher led the Blue Demons with four birdies and also put an exclamation point on his day with a birdie on 18 to go along with three others on the back nine. The junior is in tie for 21st with Seton Hall’s J.T. Harper.

Jonathan Hewett, who entered Monday’s second round in a tie for fourth, dropped five spots into fifth place.  The freshman carded a round of 77 which included a pair of birdies.  After a rough start to the day, Hewett went even par on the back nine to put him eight shots off the tournament’s leader – Ryan McCormick.

Adrian Halimi is tied for 30th and Moritz Ackerhans is in 34th place.

With St. John’s still atop the leaderboard, the top three teams stayed the same from round one to round two.  Marquette (595) is second and Seton Hall (608) is third.

Xavier (609) is one stroke behind the Pirates and jumped into fourth place after tying St. John’s for the lowest round of the day at 295.  DePaul (610) is one stroke behind the Musketeers in fifth place. Georgetown (618), Butler (630), Villanova (642) and Creighton (644) round out the final four spots in the team standings, respectively.

The Red Storm’s Ryan McCormick and Ben Ludlam are one-two on the leaderboard heading into Tuesday’s final round. McCormick is three-under for the tournament to lead the 45-player tournament field.

The Championship concludes on Tuesday with teams going starting at both the Dogwood and Magnolia courses at 8 a.m. (ET).  The Championship is free and open the public.  Team and individual awards will be distributed at the conclusion of the third round.
