The second round will resume at 7:30 a.m. on Saturday, May 16, with players continuing from their suspended point and then continuing right into the third and final round.

The 54-hole event is being played at the par-72, 7,372-yard The Club at Olde Stone.

Cleveland State players were between holes 12 and 15 when the weather turned bad. The Vikings were 17-over-par for the round and will continue the second round in 12th place out of 14 teams.

Junior Patrick Elber had CSU's low round going, standing at two-over-par through 13 holes. Junior Kyle Cobb was four-over through 14, while senior Jake Scott was five-over through 15 and sophomore Kent Monas six-over through 12 holes.
