STOCKTON, Calif. – Simon Fraser junior Chris Crisologo carded a birdie on his first and final holes of the first round of the 2017 NCAA Division II West/South Central Super Regional to finish Monday's play in a tie for ninth place with a score of 4-under-par 68.
Crisologo opened with four birdies in the first 14 holes before recording his first and only bogey on the first day of action at the 6,777-yard par-72 Bookside Country Club.
Crisologo is tied with six other players in ninth. A group of four players are tied for fifth.
Crisologo is one of eight players that were selected to compete individually in the super regional. He is in a tie for second place among golfers competing individually. In order to qualify for the national tournament, Crisologo must be among the top two finishers that are from teams which do not finish in the top three as a team in the super regional and among those players competing individually.
Crisologo is currently two strokes behind Trevor McKune from Colorado Mesa, the top player competing as an individual, after Day 1. McKune shot six-under-par 66.
Crisologo finished six strokes ahead of the other two players he was paired with from Stanislaus State and Texas A&M International.
California Baptist's Trevor Lampson is atop the leaderboard with a score of 10-under-par 62. He recorded five birdies and an eagle without any bogies on the front nine and holds a four-stroke lead going into the second round.
Western Washington senior Chris Hatch shot a 5-under-par 67 on the first day of the 2017 NCAA Division II West/South Central Super Regional to lead the Vikings to a fifth-place spot on the leaderboard after round one on Monday afternoon in Stockton, California.
Hatch is tied for fifth place individually after recording three birdies and an eagle with no bogeys. Western Washington needs to finish inside the top three out of 20 teams to advance to the national tournament.
Western Washington shot a 6-under-par 282 in the first round, which is tied with Dixie State and Cal State Monterey Bay for fifth place. Sonoma State and California Baptist are tied for first place at 14-under-par 274. The event lasts three days and covers 54 holes in three rounds.
Play will resume on Tuesday morning at 7:30 a.m. with the second of three rounds to be played.
