CSU has placed 15th and 18th in its last two events and is looking to return to the form that saw the Bucs take runner-up honors at the Bash at the Beach last month. Senior Art Griffin, who did not play last week at the Furman Intercollegiate, returns to anchor the lineup along with classmate Jacques Wilson, Dylan Patscot, Elliot Gothe and Connor Moore will round out the five for coach Jason Payne's squad.
Four of the other eight teams in the field come from the Big South as CSU will get another chance to see some of its competition with the conference championship creeping closer later this month.
Wilson paced CSU with a T-32nd place finish last week in Greenville, S.C. Gothe and Moore closed with 75's in somewhat difficult conditions to cap the event on a high note.
CSU will head to Wofford next week for its final tune-up prior to the Big South Championship.
