BRIDGEVILLE — Going into today’s final two rounds of the Delaware Amateur, the title in the 69th annual tournament is still very much up for grabs.

There’s now a two-way tie for the lead after Dawson Anders carded his second straight 68 to pull even with Austin Barbin at eight-under par 136 after two rounds

The top-nine players are all within seven strokes of the lead going into today’s final 36 holes at Heritage Shores. Forty players made the cut at eight-over par 152.

The leaders are scheduled to tee off their first round of the day at 10:51 a.m. today.

Barbin did hold a three-shot lead after firing an opening-round 65 on Monday. But he finished with a 71 on Tuesday.

Anders, a 21-year-old who plays for Temple University, pulled even with his 68. The Telford Pa. native tallied a total of five birdies — including three on the front nine — against only one bogey.

Peter Barron, who won the tournament two years ago, is one shot back at 137 after also shooting a 68 on Tuesday. Defending champion Evan Brown of DuPont is three strokes off the lead at 139.

Anders and Brown both lead the field with 11 birdies in the tourney so far.

College athletics

CAA to open up tourney fields: The Colonial Athletic Association announced on Tuesday that it’s conference tournaments will include all league teams in the coming school year.

The move will impact only some sports in the conference, which includes the University of Delaware.

In men’s and women’s basketball, for instance, every league team already played in the CAA tourney.

With the coronavirus pandemic leaving schedules up in the air — as well as probably meaning that teams will play uneven conference slates — officials made the decision to give every program a chance at an NCAA Tournament berth.

“I commend the conference’s athletic administrators and conference staff for their forward thinking and open‐mindedness as we continue to navigate through a period of great unknown associated with the 2020‐21 academic year,” CAA Commissioner Joe D’Antonio said in a press release.

“This championship model directly coincides with the Extreme Flexibility Model that the conference established for 2020‐21 regular season competitions, and provides each student‐athlete with an opportunity to work toward the goal of being a CAA Champion.”

The CAA press release said that student‐athlete health and safety, limiting travel and missed class time and controlling costs played a major factor in determining the championships schedule.

The conference will divide its tournaments in men’s and women’s soccer and women’s lacrosse into regional brackets for the first round and quarterfinals before moving to a more central geographic location for the semifinals and championship game. Men’s lacrosse will conduct two quarterfinal games hosted by the higher seeds, with the winners advancing to a central site for the semifinals and title game.

In the sports of men’s and women’s cross country, field hockey, volleyball, men’s and women’s swimming & diving, men’s and women’s basketball, men’s and women’s golf, men’s and women’s tennis, men’s and women’s track & field, softball and baseball, the entire championship will be held at one location.

A committee of athletics administrators and conference staff will determine seeds for the championships using a variety of metrics, including a postseason poll of the conference’s head coaches. In the event that all teams play a true conference schedule, conference standings will determine the seeds.

Delaware is scheduled to host the CAA field hockey tournament on Nov. 5-8.
