Rheinecker carded a 73 over Monday's first round before signing a 1 under par 71 Tuesday to cap a successful first event for the Buffs.
Milligan (313-306) finished five strokes off third place as a group after making a strong move from day one to day two.

Nick Brock (77-78) and Reece Walker (81-75), both competing as individuals, posted the next lowest scores for Milligan.
University of Pikeville (295-288) won the event by a 10-stroke margin over the rest of the field. The individual lead was shared by three competitors who all finished with a two-day, 36-hole total of 141.
