Sept. 23, 2013
The Colonials made their debut at the event with 36 holes on Hermitage Country Club's par-72, 6,955-yard Manakin Course on Monday.
Farmer, playing as part of GW's five-man team, followed up an opening round 6-over-par 78 with an even-par 72 for a two-round 6-over 150 to sit in a tie for 39th place out of 77 golfers. Farmer's 72 is his third round of par-or-better in his opening five rounds of collegiate golf after starting 71-72 at the Adams Cup last week.
Heda, competing as an individual at the event, made four birdies en route to a 2-over 74 in his debut collegiate round, followed by a 7-over 79 in the second round and is tied for 51st at 9-over 153. Heda tied for 18th in field with six birdies on Monday.
GW is in 12th place with a 36-hole team total of 55-over 631. Virginia Tech holds a two-shot lead over Iowa State with a 9-under team total of 567, and the Hokies' Scott Vincent is the individual leader at 7-under 137.
Junior Jack Persons and sophomore Steve Piela are both tied for 68th at 16-over 160. Persons rebounded from an opening 14-over 86 with a 2-over 74 in Round 2, aided by three front-side birdies after starting on Hole 8. Piela carded identical rounds of 8-over 80.
