ANN ARBOR, Mich. - Lamar fired four sub-par rounds Monday afternoon and finished the first day of action at the Wolverine Intercollegiate tied for second with a five-over par 573. The Cardinals, who enter the final round of action tied with tournament-host Michigan, are only two strokes behind Michigan State who finished the day with a 294-277 - 571.

"Obviously, there is more golf to be played tomorrow, but I thought we played well to start this tournament," said head coach Brian White. "As a team, we were pretty consistent across the board. I like where we stand heading into tomorrow's final round of action."

Senior Stephane Dubois and junior Luke Jerling posted top-10 finishes by carding an opening day one-over 143, although they took different paths to get there. Jerling fired a four-over par in the opening round but battled back with a three-under 68 in the second round. Dubois was two under heading into the second round and closed out the day with a three-over 74.

Junior Gustaf Burenstam opened the day with a five-over 76, but finished the second round with a one-under 70 to finish Monday tied for 23rd at 146. Freshman Louis Bemberg tied Burenstam with a four-over 146. Bemberg carded one of the team's four under-par rounds when he fired a two-under 69 in the opening round. Sophomore Gregory Wiggins finished the day tied for 32nd with a 72-76 - 148.

Lamar closes out the Wolverine Intercollegiate Tuesday beginning at 8:45 a.m. The Cardinals will tee off on the first tee, with the Cards' final tee time set for 9:12 a.m.
