Stanford wrestling schedules an outdooor match at Taube Tennis Center

Stanford's Andrew Yun shot a 2-under 70 on the second day of the Isleworth Collegiate Invitational in Florida on Monday, moving into sole possession of second place on the player leaderboard with a two-round total of 3-under 141.

Stanford slipped into a tie for second as a team after shooting a round of 297 on the heels of Sunday's 290. The Cardinal shares the spot with LSU, four strokes off the pace set by Alabama.

Senior Steve Ziegler also shot a sub-par round, finishing with a 71, which moves him into 12th place with a total score of 146.

Sihwan Kim and Cameron Wilson each fell a bit, and are tied for 29th place heading into Tuesday's final round.

Yun birdied two of his first five holes, but then suffered a double bogey and bogey before rallying for birdies on holes 15 and 16.

Ziegler, who has 10 bogeys over two rounds, came back with six birdies Monday, including three straight on holes 13, 14 and 15, to move up 15 spots on the leaderboard.

Kim started the day 1-under thanks to a steady first round showing, but couldn't repeat that success. He was 7-over on the front nine before righting himself and finishing strong with birdies on 16 and 17.
