ATLANTA –

Roberto Castro and Cameron Tringale each shot a two-under-par 70 Monday to pace Georgia Tech, which posted its second straight team score of 287 and moved up a spot to seventh place after 36 holes of the Puerto Rico Classic in Rio Grande, P.R.

Castro, a senior from Alphatetta, Ga., remained in a tie for third place individually at six-under-par 138, two shots behind Joseph Bramlett of Stanford (67) and Brendon Todd of Georgia (68).

The Tech All-American, whose round Monday included six birdies and four bogeys, is tied with Matthew Savage of Stanford, Matthew Swan of Alabama and Rhys Davies of East Tennessee State. Davies and teammate Cian McNamara, who each shot 65 in the opening round Sunday, fell back Monday after posting scores of 73 and 74, respectively.

Tringale, a sophomore from Laguna Niguel, Calif., with four birdies and two bogeys on Monday, moved into a tie for 16th individually with Dan Doyle of Northwestern and Toby Ragland of Florida at three-under-par 140.

All five players for Georgia, the nation’s fifth-ranked team, shot 70 or better on Monday (11-under 277 team score) to lift the Bulldogs into the lead at 20-under-par 556, four shots ahead of Stanford (16-under 560). East Tennessee State is another three shots back at 13-under 563. Alabama and Clemson are tied for fourth at nine-under 567, and Minnesota is in sixth place at four-under 574.

Tech, at two-under 574, is 18 strokes off the lead and three shots ahead of eighth-place Florida and Oklahoma State heading into Tuesday’s final round.

Also counting for Tech Monday were freshman Chesson Hadley (72), who is tied for 31st place at one-over-par 145, and senior Kevin Larsen (75), who is tied for 64th at 150. Freshman Daniel Bowden shot a 79.
