CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. -- Augusta State fired a nine-under 279 Monday morning in the opening round of Aldila Scenic City Invitational at Council Fire Golf Club.

The tournament marks the 2008-09 season opener for the Jaguars, who were in third place after the morning round. Jacksonville State posted an 11-under 277 and co-host Chattanooga booked a 10-under 278. Wichita State and Western Carolina rounded out the top five at 280 (-8) and 283 (-5), respectively.

Junior Jake Amos paced the Jags with a three-under 69, while junior Janne Kaske was one of three players to post a two-under 70. Redshirt freshman and true freshman Brendan Gillins and Taylor Floyd notched a pair of 70’s in their first collegiate event while sophomore Henrik Norlander signed for a two-over 74 and didn’t count towards the team’s score for the first time in his ASU career.

Senior Mike Keast and sophomore Jacob Carlsson, competing as individuals, were able to complete 36 holes. Carlssson managed a one-under 143 (69-74) while Keast produced a four-over 148 (75-73).

The round of the day was turned in by Matt Carvell of Southeastern Louisiana. Carvell set a new course record with a 12-under 60 which included three eagles and eight birdies, along with a pair of bogeys.

Inclement weather forced the suspension of play, with the teams returning to the course to complete their second rounds beginning at 9:00 a.m. The third and final round will immediately follow, with the teams remaining in their pairings from the first two rounds.
