|Wind wrecks havoc|
LAS VEGAS, Nev. - Jared du Toit had a one-over 73 to move into sixth at the Western Athletic Conference Golf Championship Tournament and the Idaho Vandals remained in second but blustery conditions still took a toll and the Vandals are 15 strokes back of second-day leader New Mexico State.
"The wind showed up after about six holes and blew up to 25 miles an hour," Idaho coach John Means said. "That changed the complexion of the championship. We struggled with the wind.
"We're going back out to work on some things to get ready for the final round. The wind is supposed to be high again. We just have to be smarter than the wind."
New Mexico State's mastery of the conditions enabled the Aggies to build a 15-stroke lead (557-572) over the Vandals, who are 13 strokes ahead of third-place Missouri-Kansas City.
Ryan Porch is tied for seventh for Idaho after a five-over 77 gave him a two-day 144. Aaron Cockerill and Rylee Iacolucci are tied for 11th with 145s, and Sean McMullen is tied for 15th with a 146.
