Port Orchard, Wash. --- The Washington State men's golf team will spend day two at the Husky Invitational trying to dig themselves out of a hole. After one round at the Trophy Lake Golf Course, the Cougars are last in the 10-team field.

Washington State did keep the majority of the field within striking distance by shooting a 24-over-par 384. Oregon State is ninth with a three-stroke advantage, while Stanford, California, and San Jose State are tied for sixth at 380. Oregon and Tulsa are tied for the lead with four-over-par 364s.

Freshman Ryan Camp (Spokane, Wash.) and junior Roger Flynn (Boise, Idaho) are tied for 21st with three-over-par 75s, tops among the six Cougars in the tournament. Camp is trying to complete his first collegiate tournament after withdrawing from the Northwest Collegiate Classic two weeks ago with a hand injury.

Junior captains Jon Reehoorn (Burlington, Wash.) and Jeremy Taylor (Richland, Wash.) finished the day just outside the top 25. Reehoorn carded a 76 and is knotted with seven other players for 30th, while Taylor shot a 77 and is in 37th.

Tulsa's Billy Lowry is the individual leader after firing a four-under-par 68. He has a two-stroke lead over Pepperdine's Randy Creighton.

Play begins Tuesday at 7:30 p.m. at the par-72, 7,206-yard course.
