Round 2 Results:
A disappointing second round 295 team total (11 over par) slid Stanford from a tie for 8th to 13th.  Franklin Huang (76-71 147 T45) was the team's low man on the day with an even par 71 as his four birdies offset four bogeys.  Isaiah Salinda with 73-73 146 and Henry Shimp with 71-75 146 left them tied for 33rd individually.

Cal's 278 total on the day was the best in the field and they trail leader Oklahoma State by one.   Look for a strong final round from the Cardinal to finish with some positive momentum.  Second round scoring is shown below - click on the image to enlarge.
