SALEM, Ore. — The Lewis-Clark State men’s golf team put itself in contention for the Cascade Conference title and the Corban Spring Invitational crown despite playing 36 holes in miserable conditions Monday at Creekside Golf Club.

With temperatures in the low 40s and the wind-chill factor in the high 30s, the Warriors took the first-round lead with a 591 over 36 holes, while British Columbia and Corban assumed a tie for second at 606.

This was the third of four conference tournaments, and a running score is used to determine the regular-season champion. LC State entered trailing UBC by 10 strokes, but now enters today’s final 18 holes leading by five.

Jorgen Lie Viken of L-C fired a 74 and a 70 to stand at even-par 144. He holds the individual lead by two shots over Davila, who tallied two 73s in both rounds for a 146. The Warriors’ Kristof Panke is tied for third at 148, but shaved 10 shots off his opening round with the day’s overall best score of 69.

On the women’s side, Deana Caruso fired a 79 to lead the Warriors. She stands tied for seventh after 18 holes of the 36-hole event on the women’s side, while the Warriors are tied for fourth in the team standings.
