@LATechGolf in Ninth after First Round of C-USA Championship

April 27, 2014


EDMOND, Okla. - Louisiana Tech sophomore Victor Lange shot 2-under-par (68) in the opening round to finish the day in second place while the team finished the first day in ninth place.

Overall the Bulldogs shot 24-over-par (304) on the day, finishing two strokes ahead of Marshall and two strokes behind UTEP. Tulsa leads the tournament overall at 8-over-par (288) while no. 18 UAB closely follows at 10-over-par (290).

Lange trails Tulsa’s Logan McCracken (3-under-par, 67) by one stroke and the two top individual scorers were the only players to record under-par rounds on a day that was marked by strong winds gusting over 40 miles per hour. Inclement weather initially pushed back the start of the tournament four hours with the Bulldogs – originally slated to begin play at 8 a.m. – not starting until noon.

Jack Lempke was the next-best Bulldog to finish at 6-over-par (76) as he finished the day tied for 33rd overall. Chuck Spears shot 9-over-par (79) to tie for 50th while Travis Wilmore and Ben Robinson finished the round tied for 56th at 11-over-par (81).

Louisiana Tech tees off in the second round on Hole No. 10 at 9:12 a.m. Monday as the Bulldogs will be paired with Southern Miss and UTEP. Lange will continue his challenge for an individual championship when he tees off at 9:48 a.m. alongside Southern Miss’ Trent Hillis and UTEP’s Frederik Dresler.
