Sept. 12, 2015

USAFA, Colo. -- The Boise State men's golf team is in 12th place following the first two rounds of the Gene Miranda Falcon Invitational Saturday, the team's opening tournament of the season.

Sophomore Tristan Rohrbaugh led the way for the Broncos at the par-72, 7,401-yard Blue Course at the Eisenhower Golf Club, opening with rounds of 73-72 (145, +1). He will enter the final round in the midst of an eight-way tie for 21st.

The Broncos fired rounds of 301-288 (589; +13), two strokes back of Utah in the 16-school field.

"The first one is always interesting," head coach Dan Potter said. "You just never know exactly what to expect. We didn't play the way we wanted today, but our guys looked good - from the minute they showed up at the airport, during the practice round and even today. This group has a good vibe about them and I'm excited to see them at their best this season."

Junior Kyle Mitsunaga rebounded from an opening-round 77 (+5), shooting 2-under in the second (70). He is one stroke back of Rohrbaugh at 147 (+3).

Sophomore Jacob Byers (76-72--148, +4), freshman Alex Francois (77-74--151, +7) and senior Logan France (75-77--152, +8) rounded out the scoring for the Broncos.

Boise State is scheduled to begin teeing off for Sunday's final round at 7:30 a.m., and live scoring is available at GolfstatResults.com.
