Freshman Jose Mendez of the Gophers was tied for second through 10 holes Thursday in the NCAA men’s golf regional in Raleigh, N.C., when play was halted because of inclement weather.

Mendez, the co-medalist in the Big Ten meet, was 4-under, with four birdies, in his interrupted round.

The Gophers were in eighth place out of 13 teams — the top five advance to the NCAA meet — at 1-over. Seniors Jon Trasamar and Alex Gaugert are both at 1-over through 10 holes, tied for 40th.

The first round will be completed Friday morning before the second round begins.

 

A St. Paul celebration

St. Paul City players dominated the state badminton tournament. All the players in the singles and doubles semifinals were from either Central, Harding or Johnson.

Julie Chang of Central won the singles title, beating Pa Nyia Vue of Harding 21-18, 21-14.

The doubles champions were Yee Thao and Pajar Vang of Johnson.
