    The final round of the tournament, which is being hosted by SIUE at Sunset Hills Country Club, will begin Tuesday morning.

    In his first-career tournament at SIU, junior Wade Thompson fired a team-best 3-over 147 on the 6,645-yard, par 72 course. He was matched by teammate Drew Novara, who rallied from 5-over after the first round to shoot 2-under in the second round. Both golfers are tied for 13th place overall. Novara's second-round 2-under was a personal best at SIU and the second-best 18-hole mark among the 69 tournament competitors.
