Bakersfield, UND - Senior Nick Schaefer rebounded from an opening round 78 (+6) to post a 73 (+1) in his final 18 holes of the day at the CSUB Spring Invitational on Monday to pace the North Dakota men's golf team.

Each squad in the five-team played 36 holes on the 6,804-yard, par 72 layout at the Bakersfield Country Club. Schaefer's 73 in the second round was tied for the fourth-best score overall in the final 18 holes of competition on the opening day of the tournament.

That matched UND sophomore Collin Lervick's 73 (+1) from the opening round, which also tied for the fourth best score overall in the first 18 holes of the day. Schaefer wound up in a tie for 11th, while Lervick was tied for 15th after carding an 81 (+2) in his second round.

Juniors Sean Halverson and Joseph McNelis each finished with two-round totals of 161 (+17) and are tied for 20th overall.  McNelis backed up an opening-round 78 (+6) with an 83 (+11), while Halverson went 82-79 in his two rounds.

Senior Alex Robb started the day, but was unable to finish, meaning UND had to use all four scores from the four golfers that completed both rounds.

Host CSU Bakersfield (581, +5) holds an eight-shot lead on Sonoma State (589, +13) in the team standings. UND enters Tuesday's final round in fourth place.
