Both Casey Bannon And Chaz Heinz finished the day tied for 65th, shooting an 82 in the first round.

Rounding out the Lions' group was Ryan Gendron, whose 11-over score ties him for 74th among the field.

The 16-team field features five top-25 contenders, including No. 1 Barry and No. 4 CSU-Monterey Bay, who are currently tied for 1st place, as well as No. 10 Western New Mexico (3rd place), No. 17 CSU-Stanislaus (4th place), and the host school, No. 25 St. Edwards (5th place).
