Blue Raiders start slow at Aldila Intercollegiate

Play suspended in second round

September 8, 2008 · MT Athletic Communications
CHATTANOOGA - Middle Tennessee shot a 2-over 290 and dug itself a deep hole in the opening round of the Aldila Scenic City Intercollegiate before inclement weather suspended play during the second round late Monday afternoon.

The Blue Raiders are 13 shots behind leader Jacksonville State (277). Chattanooga shot 10-under 278 and is in second, followed by Augusta State (279). Middle Tennessee stood at 11th amongst the 16-team field after the first round but was playing better when play was suspended. Chas Narramore and Jason Millard were each 4-under in the second round and it will resume at 8 a.m. Tuesday followed by the third round.

"We were playing much better in the second round and that's a good way to get off the course," Blue Raider coach Whit Turnbow said. "We can go to bed feeling better and hopefully carry that play into tomorrow but we have a lot of work to do. We dug ourselves a pretty deep hole."

Narramore was the only Blue Raider under par in the opening round with a 1-under 71 and is tied for 25th overall. Rick Cochran shot even par and is tied for 33rd. Freshman Brad Simons shot 1-over 73 in his first collegiate round and is tied for 43rd. Kent Bulle and Jason Millard were 2-over and are tied for 52nd. Freshman Hunter Green is playing as an individual and shot 3-over 75, tied for 61st.
