Chartier carded a 1-under 71 on Saturday, moving him four spots up the leaderboard into a tie for 44th at 1-over-par 145. The Buccaneer freshman was nearly flawless in round two as he recorded two birdies, 15 pars and one bogey.
After firing a 4-under in Friday’s opener, senior Shiso Go (Kanagawa, Japan) posted a 3-over 75 to dip into a tie for 30th at 1-under-par 143. Go, who was two-over thru his first seven holes, battled to get back to even thanks to consecutive birdies on No. 8 and No. 9; however, he played the back nine at three-over to post the 75. Teammate Archie Davies (Carlisle, England) shot an even-par on Saturday and is also tied for 30th.
As a team, ETSU shot an even-par 288 in round two and moved four spots down the leaderboard into ninth-place at 2-under-par 574. The Bucs sit ahead of No. 24 Alabama (+1) and No. 20 Texas Tech (+2).
