Falcons struggle in opening round

(Continued)

BLAINE, Wash. —

FSU’s first player will tee off today at 8:10 a.m. which will be 11:10 a.m. in Fairmont.

“We honestly feel like things can only get better for us,” said Comer. “I’m not going to lie, the conditions out here were tough in the first round. It was very windy and if your ball got up in the wind it was nothing for it to move 30 yards.

“We’re not going to make excuses, though. We’re going to be well-rested and come out Wednesday early and try to get it done.”

Cal State University-San Bernardino’s Gene Webster is the individual leader of the tournament. He carded an opening-round, one-under par 70. He’s followed by Sonoma State’s Patrick Bauer, Barry University’s Victor Billskoog, Barton College’s Jonathan Burke, Wayne State University’s Steve Cuzzort and Northeastern State University’s Sam Powell, who all shot even-par 71s in the opening round.

There was one rare occurrence in the first round of the tourney. Washburn University’s Matt Ewald recorded a hole-in-one on the 326-yard, par-4 No. 13 hole. Ewald finished one-over for the day and is tied for seventh individually in the tournament. He used his driver to ace the hole. It was his first career hole-in-one and the first one ever recorded on the 13th hole at Loomis Trail which opened in 1992.
