Sophomore Zach Robbins posted back-to-back rounds in the 60's to close play at CSU's home event. He finished at -3 for the tournament in a tie for second place. His second-round 66 was the lowest round by a Viking in over two years. Robbins is averaging 73.9 strokes per round this season.

Supelak joined Robbins in earning his first collegiate top-10 finish last time out. Supelak was under par in each of his opening two rounds and finished the event at +3, tying for seventh. He leads the team in scoring average (73.7) and rounds at par or better (4).

Cleveland State has a 295.3 team scoring average entering the fifth and final event of its fall season.
