HUTCHINSON, Kansas -- No. 8 Washington had a very short day at Prairie Dunes Country Club on Sunday, playing just a couple holes to finish off Saturday's second round. The Dawgs then waited for the rest of the field to finish and find out what was next.
Washington played a total of just nine holes to complete round two, making the most of it with three birdies. Two of those birdies came from Trevor Simsby whose score was not used, however. The Dawgs finished the second round at 7-over 287 and are now at 6-over 556 for the championship.
Despite the short day, Washington moved up five spots to a tie for 11th on the leaderboard as several teams that had much longer days dropped below the Huskies. The Dawgs are just three shots out of the top eight, which is currently held by No. 21 UCLA at 3-over. Washington needs to finish in the top eight through 54 holes to advance to the Tuesday's match play round.
Due to the weather delays all week, Monday's originally scheduled individual championship has been cancelled. Instead, Monday will be for all teams finishing 54 holes with the individual winner coming from those three rounds.
Teams placing 16th through 30th will begin their third round Sunday afternoon. The top-15 teams, including the Huskies, will begin their third round on Monday morning. Tee times have not yet been decided as it will depend on how many holes the bottom-15 teams play Sunday evening.
