NAPA VALLEY - The Northern Colorado men's golf team is battling hard against both opponents and the elements to move up the rankings at the Drake Spring Invitational. The Bears have moved up one spot to fourth after two rounds of play and have carded an overall score of 634 (318,316).

Despite the bad weather, the Bears have been led so far by the consistent play of Rich Lash. Lash's first and second rounds were identical as the senior posted a 77 for round two tying him in ninth heading into round three.
Sophomore Steve Bidne followed closely in round two as he shot a 78. Bidne leaves round two in 16th place, tallying an overall score of 158.
