Ben Hauge (So., Ramsey, Minn.) and Chris Captain (Sr., Rochester, Minn.) led the Gusties with rounds of 74 and 75, respectively. Hauge is tied for 14, while Captain is tied for 18th. The leaders shot 70.

“We struggled out of the gates today and never got our putters going,” Head Coach Scott Moe said. “We hit the ball pretty well. Ben and Chris hung on for decent rounds today. It will be a much different course tomorrow and I think it will set up for a good round.”

The two round event concludes tomorrow.
