There are a total of 13 teams competing in the tournament.

Three UMHB players are tied for the individual lead after opening with two-under par 70’s on Monday. Alden Fortner, Mats Heien and Kyle Revis all posted that number for the Cru. Reese Chance fired a 71 and is in fourth place, Jarrod Brown is tied for fifth place with a 72, Zane Washburn and Zach Daroowala are tied for 12th place with 74’s, Mason Wyatt recorded a 77 to tie for 21st place, Cort Crawley shot 78 to tie for 29th place and Kade Bentley is tied for 35th place with an opening round 79 for UMHB.
