Waikoloa, HI – Sophomore Nicholas Thompson fired a five-under-par 67 and senior Troy Matteson a three-under 69 Thursday, and Tech shot an 8-under-par 280 as a team, but slid to a tie for 10th place after two rounds of the Taylor Made/Waikoloa Intercollegiate in Waikoloa, Hawai’i.

Sophomore Chan Wongluekiet, who was tied for the lead after 18 holes, shot 73 and is in a tie for 42nd place at 1-over-par 143.
