JOPLIN, Mo. The Washburn Ichabods are 18 holes from their third NCAA National Tournament in the last four years (2003, 2004, 2005) as they will be taking a 11 stroke lead into the final round of the NCAA Central Region Golf Tournament at Twin Hills Golf and Country Club.

Washburn leads fellow MIAA squad Missouri Southern by 11 shots after carding a team score of 289. Continuing to lead the pace is Ichabod Ryan Deutsch, who shot his second straight 2-under 70. He leads a pair of Missouri Southern golfers, Tyler Goecker (74-71/145) and Tommy Cifford (74-71/145) who are 1-over and five shots behind Deutsch.

Washburn's Matt Ewald trails the Lion duo by one shot after finishing with a two-day total of 146 following a pair of 1-over 73s. Ewald was 1-over on the back side as the team started on the 10th hole while recording 15 pars in his second round.

Matt Lazzo (74-73/147) is in a tie for fifth for the Ichabods moving up from eighth place to begin the second round. Lazzo was 1-over today and 3-over for the tournament.

John Robbins is in a tie for 13th place (77-73/150) after recording a 73 in the second round - four shots improved from his first round.

Taylor Dunham (78-78/156) is in a tie for 27th after recording his second straight 78. Dunham was even after the first 10 holes, but was 6-over on his next five holes before finishing with a trio of pars.
