LAREDO, Texas -
Senior Stephane Dubois carded a two-under 142 to pace Lamar on the opening day of the Border Olympics Friday at the Laredo Country Club in Laredo, Texas. Dubois (T5th) is one of two Cardinals to end the opening round on the individual leaderboard's top 10.
The Cardinals carded a 295-294 - 589 to end the day fifth overall, only a stroke behind Louisiana-Monroe.
"We got some great leadership from Stephane earlier today," said head coach Brian White. "Luke also played really well for us today. This is one of the best combined efforts we have put forth this season. We can't sit back and be happy with two good rounds, we have to close this thing out with a strong round tomorrow."
Dubois' under-par score has him tied for fifth entering Saturday's final round of action. He is joined in the top 10 by junior Luke Jerling.
