CLEMMONS, N.C. - The Newberry College Wolves shot a 15-over par 295 and are just five strokes back of the lead after the first round of the Will Wilson Southeast Regional Preview at the Tanglewood Champions Course.

Newberry was led in the opening round by Chandler Gruenemeier (Jacksonville, Fla.) shot a 1-over par 71 in the opening round, and sits in a tie for third place, just two strokes off of the lead. UNC Pembroke's Jonathan McCurry and Carson-Newman's Liam Ashby are tied for the lead after shooting 1-under par 69 in their first round at the par-70 course.

Matthew Killen (Yorkshire, England) was just two strokes behind Gruenemeier and is tied for ninth place after an opening 3-over par 73. Ben Lown (North Augusta, S.C.) is tied for 23rd with a 5-over 75. Brooks Massey (Lexington, S.C.) shot a 6-over par 76 and is tied for 34th place along with Matthew Campbell (Rome, N.Y.). Massey is competing in the tournament as an individual and his score did not count towards Newberry's team totals. Daniel Stanley (Inman, S.C.) rounded out the Wolves' scores with an 8-over 78, placing him in a tie for 51st.

The Wolves return to the Champions Course tomorrow morning with a great chance to move up the team leaderboard. UNC Pembroke leads with a 10-over 390, just five strokes ahead of Newberry. Wingate and Carson-Newman each shot 3-over 293 to tie for second after the first day, while Newberry is tied for fourth with Queens.
