The third and final round will be played Tuesday (8 a.m.).

Western, ranked No.5 in the latest Golf Coaches Association of America Golf World/NIKE Golf Top 25, had rounds of 301 and 300 for a 36-hole total of 601.

Host Cal State Stanislaus leads the 20-team field at 6-over par 582, posting back-to-back rounds of 291. Cal State San Bernardino opened the day with a tourney-best round of 290 to lead by one stroke, then shot 297 and is second, five strokes back at 587.

Cal State Monterey Bay is third at 588 (294-294) and Sonoma State is fourth at 589 (296-293).
