Caleb Manuel of Topsham and Cole Anderson of Camden were both in contention to advance to the NCAA Division I golf championship after turning in strong second rounds Tuesday at regionals in Connecticut and Florida.

Manuel, a sophomore at the University of Connecticut, shot a 2-under 68 for the second day in a row and was tied for sixth at the regional in New Haven, Connecticut. He’s battling for one qualifying spot available to players who are competing as individuals because their team didn’t qualify, and goes into Wednesday’s final round tied with Adrien Dumont de Chassart of Illinois and Adrian Vagberg of Virginia Commonwealth.

Anderson, meanwhile, shot a 1-under 71 to help Florida State move into second place at its regional in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida.

Anderson was tied for 11th with an even-par total of 144 going into Wednesday’s final round. Florida State also had an even-par score as a team. The top five teams advance to the NCAA Championship in Scottsdale, Arizona, from May 27 to June 1. Florida State was 12 shots ahead of sixth-place Notre Dame.
