BEND, Ore. – The No. 7 Colorado School of Mines golf team trimmed six strokes off its opening round, led by a second-round 65 by Michael Lee, to finish the first day of the Golfweek Division II Preview in a tie for fourth overall on Monday at the Sunriver Resort, Crosswater Course in Sunriver, Ore. 

Mines' 289 on the second round was just one stroke above par, and helped cut into the lead of tournament leader, CSU-Stanislaus, who opened with a 286 during the first round. The Orediggers, currently tied for fourth overall with No. 9 Western Washington, trail by four strokes heading into Tuesday's finale.

Kyle Grassel currently sits tied for 31st overall after rounds of 76 and 73 left him at five-over, and Joe Schwark sits third on the team and tied for 36th overall following matching 75's on Monday. 

Freshman John Ahern carded a pair of 76's to finish the first two rounds in a tie for 43rd overall while sophomore Jordan Arndt posted rounds of 77 and 78 to finish Monday in a tie for 52nd.
