The starting times for Midwestern State's scheduled doubleheader with Texas-Permian Basin Tuesday afternoon has been moved up to 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. due to forecasted inclement weather.
The teams were originally slated to begin play at 5 and 7 p.m., but precipitation chances are forecasted to increase ahead of dry line moving in from the west. Storms could turn severe.
The Mustangs' Swing for the Cure promotion has also been reslated for Friday, April 19 against Texas A&M-Kingsville.
Midwestern State (29-12) has won five of its last six games after taking two of three from No. 7-ranked Texas Woman's University over the weekend.
Texas-Permian Basin (10-28) snapped a seven-game skid by taking two of three over Oklahoma Christian over the weekend.
The Midwestern State Mustangs posted three sub-70 rounds in the second 18 of the day to vault into the lead of the Dallas Baptist Classic at the Hackberry Creek Country Club on Monday.
The Mustangs were tied for sixth after the opening 18 before coming back with a 12-under 276 as a team for a 4-over 580 to take a three-stroke lead over Oklahoma Christian at 7-over 583. Host Dallas Baptist is third at 588 in the 16-team field.
MSU was paced in the second round by junior Jeremy LeGuen who scorched the par 7-2, 6,964 yard Hackberry Creek course with a 5-under 67 to stand in third individually at 2-under 142, two strokes behind Abilene Christian's Alex Carpenter and Oklahoma Christian's Alasdair Dalgliesh at 4-under 140.
But LeGuen wasn't the only Mustang to go low.
Senior Antonio Herran fired a 3-under 69 and redshirt freshman Santiago Gomez added a 4-under 68, with sophomore Derek Oland adding an even-par 72 for MSU to round out the great team score in the second round.
"The guys played really solid in the second," said MSU assistant coach Chester Butts. "The steady 25 mile per hour wind caused them problems in the first round, but they figured it out the second time around."
Herran is tied for sixth individually at 1-over 145 and Gomez is tied for ninth at 2-over 146. Oland is tied for 14th at 3-over 147.
Freshman Ian Gallagher carded rounds of 79 and 81 for a 160 after two rounds for the Mustangs.
The tournament concludes with a single 18-hole round on Tuesday at Hackberry Creek.
