BURLINGTON, Iowa - Victor Lange and Ben Robinson led with a pair of two-over-par performances as Louisiana Tech stands in 14th place after the first round of action at the Golfweek Conference Challenge at Spirit Hollow Golf Course.

The Bulldogs, after shooting 306 (18-over-par) in the first round, are only one shot behind 50th-ranked Chattanooga and six shots behind 17th-ranked LSU. Houston, ranked 25th as a team, leads with a team score of 1-over-par (289).

Lange posted a 2-over-par 74 to lead the team along with Robinson but both players struggled on the back nine. Lange was even at the turn but then shot +2 to end the day. Similarly, Robinson was -1 at the turn but a bogey on 12 followed by a double-bogey on 17 put him two-over-par on the day.

Both Lange and Robinson are tied for 28th in the individual standings.

Travis Wilmore shot a six-over-par 78 to rank third on the team while John Lewis Sams was an eight-over-par 80. Chuck Spears rounded out the group with a 9-over-par 81.

The second of three rounds will begin Monday morning with Louisiana Tech teeing off at 9:45 a.m. The Bulldogs will be paired with Chattanooga and Texas State in the second round.
