Lervick fired an even-par 71 in his opening 18 holes at the Minnehaha Country Club and followed that up with a 74 (+3) to pace the Green and White in head coach Tim Swanson's debut.

Sophomore transfer Aaron Pulanco carded back-to-back 78's in his first tournament for UND. Pulanco made a team-high seven birdies on the day, while Lervick added six.

Junior Sean Halverson took five strokes off his opening round score to card a 79 (+8) in his second 18 holes. Newcomers Nick Jenson and Brady Ohman also made their UND debuts. Jenson posted a pair of 80's to finish with a 160, while Ohman went 82-80.

UND ended up with a 311 in both rounds to post a 622 (+54). Host South Dakota State finished the day with a one-shot lead on North Dakota State. The Jackrabbits carded a 587 (+19), while the Bison were close by with a 588 (+20).
