Mines 12th After First Round Of NCAA Championships

SIMPSONVILLE, Ky. – The No. 21 Colorado School of Mines golf team currently sits 12th overall after posting a 293 during the first round of the NCAA Division II Championships on Tuesday at the Cardinal Club Golf Course in Simpsonville, Ky.

Mines, who moved up to No. 21 in this week's Golfstat.com Head-to-Head computer rankings after being ranked No. 28 last week, was led by a 70 on the opener by senior Jim Knous. The RMAC Player of the Year posted his two-under-par round behind four birdies and two bogeys, including a three on the par-4, 18th hole to close his round.

Sophomore Michael Lee currently sits tied for 23rd overall after he finished his round at even-par with a 72. He posted a team-high six birdies during the opener, but also finished with four bogeys and one double to keep him at even. 

Senior Cory Bacon is tied for 60th after he carded a 75 during the opener. His round was slowed by two double bogeys, but the four-time Academic All-RMAC pick also recorded four birdies during his 18 holes.

Sophomore Kyle Grassel sits one stroke and 13 spots behind Bacon after he recorded a 76 during the opening round and freshman Jordan Arndt closed out the Oredigger scores with a 77 to finish the first round in a tie for 82nd overall. 

The tournament continues on Wednesday with the second round of action.
