JASPER, Ind. - Poor weather conditions forced the cancellation of the final round of the Ball State Cardinal Classic on Sunday and Cleveland State wound up tying for 10th place out of 14 teams.
The first two rounds were played on Saturday at the at the par-72, 6,859-yard Sultan's Run Golf Club and those were counted as the final results.
The Vikings shot an opening round 321 before coming back with a 300 in the second round and tied with IPFW for 10th place.
"We really struggled in the first round," assistant coach Nathan Miklos said. "But we were able to bounce back with a nice second round and knock a few strokes off. The weather conditions were not good and we just never got anything going. We finished behind Loyola and Wright State so hopefully this will serve as a wakeup call for us."
Host Ball State won the event with rounds of 297-294 (591), while Ball State's Anthony Novak, who was playing as an individual, won the event with a 144 (71-73).
The Vikings will be back in action on Saturday, April 4, when CSU travels to the 36-hole Ohio State Invitational. On Sunday, April 5, the Vikings will defend their team title at the Wright State Invitational.
