The teams concluded the suspended second round, which ultimately turned into the final round. Due to further weather issues in the area, the final round was not played.
The Gophers opened yesterday with a combined score of 308 and shaved off 10 strokes for a final round 298. The team finished with a 36-hole score of 606.
