SAN ANTONIO, Texas - Rice University golf opened play at the fourth-annual Lone Star Invitational in 12th place through 18 holes at San Antonio's Hill Country Resort Golf Club. Led by defending tournament champion Jeff Wibawa, the Owls carded a 305 (+17) on Sunday.
"It was a struggle today on the back nine, but we are still in pretty good shape to make a move tomorrow," noted head coach Justin Emil.
Rice finds itself two strokes back of Utah Valley and just one more from 10th-place Houston Baptist. The Owls are within 10 strokes of two teams tied for fourth place as well.
Wibawa, who finished the 2011 event with a 209 (-7) to claim the individual medal, opened with a 73 (+1) to tie in 18th place in the first of three rounds. He collected four birdies on the day, including two-straight on 16 and 17.
Joe Beck III followed closely behind with four birdies of his own to finish the day with a two-over 75 to stand in 39th place heading into Monday's second round.
Making his sophomore season debut, Ryan Benevides carded an 82 (+10) to tie for 77th place on Sunday. Starting on the back nine, Benevides strung together seven pars and back-to-back birdies to open the day before faltering a bit in the latter stages.
North Texas leads the event with a 284 (-4), including individual leader Rodolfo Cazaubon, who carded a 68 (-4). The Mean Green have a three-stroke lead on Denver and a six-stroke advantage over host UTSA.
Competing from Conference USA, Houston and Southern Miss are tied for eighth place at 298 (+10).
When Monday's second round commences, the Owls will be paired with Houston Baptist and Utah Valley at the 10th hole beginning at 9:42 a.m.
