Mountain Lions in Third After First Two Rounds of NSIC/RMAC Crossover
GOTHENBERG, Neb. - After holding the lead after the first round of play, the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs golf team slipped to third place during the second round at the NSIC/RMAC Regional Crossover at Wildhorse Golf Club.
As is normal for collegiate golf tournaments, both rounds were played on Sunday. The final of the three-round format will be played Monday.
The Mountain Lions slip from first to third had less to do with their play than a pair of remarkable performances by others. Fort Lewis carded a blistering 11-under par 277 in the second round, while Western New Mexico came in with a 3-under par 285. The result had Fort Lewis leading WNMU by 10 strokes and UCCS by 15. The rest of the field is at eight or more strokes behind the Mountain Lions.
Behind a 3-under par 69 by Riley Andrews, UCCS posted a team score of 290 to lead the first round by two strokes over Fort Lewis and Colorado State-Pueblo.
Andrews led UCCS for the day with a two-round score of 142, tying him for fourth overall at 2-under par. St. Cloud State's Gordy Diekman finished the day with a 5-under par 139 to hold a two-stroke lead for individual medalist.
Chris Shoop shot 72-75 and Spencer Biersdorff a 77-70 to place second among Mountain Lion golfers at 147. Brian Morfeld finished the day at 149 and Michael Tilghman shot a 153.
