Tommy Rockis leads the pack with a 72, and Jack Bietz and Tyler Baukol each shot a 78 to sit in a tie for third place. Their team is out front with 308 strokes after the first day. The Jimmies lead Valley City State by 13 strokes and third-place Dickinson State by 27.
Also scoring for the Jimmies was Kameron Hunter, who logged an 80. Chris Rochon wasn’t far off the pace with an 83, but only the top four are counted in team scores.

“Our women played extremely well, especially our 1-3 players,” JC coach Dustin Jensen said.
Freshman Ashley Barnhart shot an 85, which puts her in second. Right behind her is Brianna Stein in third with an 88. Beth Ryan is tied for sixth with a 93, and the Jimmies’ fourth score belonged to Chandler Germundson, who finished with a 98.
