ATLANTA –

Cameron Tringale shot a 70 Saturday to stay within striking distance of the lead, but 12th-ranked Georgia Tech slipped back to sixth place after posting a 7-over-par 295 Saturday at the Southern Highlands Collegiate golf tournament in Las Vegas, Nev.

Tringale, a senior from Laguna Niguel, Calif., played his front side in 3-under-par and dropped only one stroke on the back, finishing 36 holes at 7-under-par 137 at the 7,510-yard, par 72 Southern Highlands Golf Club. It was his 10th subpar round in 20 this year. He is alone in second place, three shots behind Morgan Hoffman of Oklahoma State, who carded a 62 Saturday and has a two-round total of 134, 10-under-par.

“Cameron continued to play well and is having a fine senior year,” said head coach Bruce Heppler. “We need to get everybody else back on track tomorrow.”

Freshman Minghao Wang posted an even-par 72 Saturday and is tied with four other golfers at 1-under-par 143.

Oklahoma State, the nation’s third-ranked team, rode Hoffman’s round to surge into the lead Saturday, posting an 18-under-par score of 270. The Cowboys, at 15-under-par 561 for 26 holes, are 12 strokes ahead of host UNLV (3-under 573). Arizona is in third place (576) followed by No. 4 Clemson (581) and No. 11 Florida (583). Tech is another stroke back at 584.

Sophomore John-Tyler Griffin shot a 76, and freshman James White a 77 Saturday to count for Tech, while senior David Dragoo shot 78 and did not count for the Jackets.

Sunday’s final round gets underway at 12 noon Eastern time, and the Jackets will tee off at 12:45 p.m.
