Tech Golfers 11th After Day One of Rice Intercollegiate

MISSOURI CITY, Texas -- After a solid opening 18 holes Monday, Louisiana Tech struggled during its afternoon round at the Rice Intercollegiate held at Willowsip Country Club.

Tech was in fourth place in the 14-team field after shooting a morning round of 299 but fell to 11th place after shooting a 313 in the afternoon.

?We played pretty well in the opening 18 holes,? said Tech head coach Jean Hall. ?We were only three or four strokes off the lead. The wind was a factor all day; it never let up but it was the same wind for everyone.

?I told our guys that we don?t have the excuse of inexperience. We don?t have any rookies any more. We have to go out and perform. We didn?t do that this afternoon. The wind wore us down and we had too many mental lapses. As a coach, I have to get that out of them. We have to focus from start to finish.?

Trey McNeill shot a two-round total of 149 (72-77) and is Louisiana Tech?s top contender, currently sitting in a tie for 14th place in the individual standings. Logan Riester (74-78=152, t31st), Amrith de Soysa (75-81=156, t49th), Mark Volk, Jr. (79-77=156, t49th) and Corey Bartlett (78-81=159, t61st) rounded out the scoring for the Bulldogs in the opening tournament of the spring season.

Santa Clara (593), Colorado State (594), Rice (598), Texas-San Antonio (601) and Richmond (601) are the top five in the team standings while Santa Clara?s Michael Nicoletti (73-71) and Richmond?s Tim Courtney (70-74=144) are tied for the individual lead.

The tournament concludes Tuesday with 18 holes starting at 8 a.m.
