    After two rounds on Monday at the UALR/First Tee Classic in Little Rock, Ark., the Southern Illinois men's golf team stands in 12th place out of 14 teams.

    The Salukis were in last place after the first round, but bounced back to move up two spots and finish the day at 42-over par. They trail Louisiana-Monroe, which leads the field at 8-over, by 34 strokes.

    Individually, SIU's Drew Novara is tied for 32nd place out of 74 golfers with a score of 8-over par. Teammates Caleb Harms (11-over) and Steven Soucheck (12-over) are close behind. Wade Thompson had both the best and worst rounds of the day for Southern, firing off a round of 84 to start the tournament before carding a 73 on the next 18 holes.

    The final round at the 7,326-yard, par-72 Chenal Country Club begins on Tuesday morning.
