OOLETWAH, Tenn. – After a two-hour weather delay earlier in the day, second-round play at the 2010 NCAA Championships was suspended Wednesday due to darkness at The Honors Course.

Georgia Tech (4-under) and August State (1-under) – the only other teams under par through 36 holes – are in third and fourth place, respectively.
San Diego’s Alex Ching shot a 6-under 66 to overtake the individual lead by two strokes at 9-under 135. Peter Uihlein of Oklahoma State is one of three players tied for second at 7-under.
