Top individual player for Logan was sophomore Adrian Brown of Carterville. Brown carded an 83. Freshman Mariah Bushue of Effingham followed with an 89. 

Sophomore Reagan Keepes of Mount Carmel checked in with a 92. 

Freshman Madison Bushue of Effingham finished with a 93 and sophomore Payton Choate (Trico High School grad) completed the day â€‹with a 94.

Southern Illinois University's A team leads the pack with a 303. Austin Peay State and WIlliam Woods are only one stroke back at 304. 

SIUC's B Team follows at 306. 

Other schools competing include: IUPUI, South Dakota, IPFW, Lindenwood, SIUE, Omaha, Chicago State, Tennessee State, and Eastern Illinois.

"I thought we played well in spurts today," said Logan head coach Bill Glenn. "I was pleased with the way Adrian scored for us. Really, nobody played all that poorly. Hopefully, on Monday, we can get our scores down a little more and try to get under 350 as a team."

Logan and Rend Lake are the only two-year schools participating in the meet.

The tournament resumes this morning at Hickory Ridge Golf Course in Carbondale.
