    HUTCHINSON, Kan. - Thanks to incomplete but bogey-free Third Rounds, University of Houston golfers Roman Robledo and James Robledo each surged into a tie for seventh place at the NCAA Championships on Sunday afternoon.

    After finishing his Second Round with a 68 early Sunday morning on the 6,941-yard, par-70 course at Prairie Dunes Country Club, Robledo returned to the course in the afternoon, draining three birdies through his first seven holes before play was suspended at 6:45 p.m., due to lightning in the area.

    Robledo's 68 in the Second Round was the lowest score by any Cougar at the NCAA Championships since Chris Morris fired a 66 in the Final Round at the 2000 NCAA Championships at Grand Lake National Golf Club in Auburn/Opelika, Ala.

    Ross was equally impressive on Sunday. The Edinburgh, Scotland, native sank two birdies in his final three holes to cap his Second Round with a 69 early Sunday morning. Returning in the afternoon for the Third Round, Ross drained birdies on No. 4 and No. 7 before play was stopped.

    As a team, the Cougars stood in 17th place at 8-over-par, finishing the Second Round with a score of 285, one stroke higher than their First-Round total. However, Houston remained just five strokes behind No. 21 UCLA for the key eighth place.

    The top eight teams after the Third Round of stroke play advance to the NCAA Championships Match Play on Tuesday and Wednesday for the team national championship.

    Due to the weather, Monday's Fourth Round for the top-40 individuals and ties was cancelled. The individual leader after Monday's completed Third Round will win the NCAA individual national championship.

    On Sunday, the Cougars joined 14 other teams in completing their Second Rounds. Teams ranked No. 16-30 after two rounds returned to the course in the afternoon for the Third Round.

    Junior Kyle Pilgrim and sophomore Vincent Martino were tied for 107th place at 8-over-par. Pilgrim stood at 1-over-par while Martino was 3-over in Sunday's Third Round. Senior Curtis Reed was tied for 144th at 16-over-par.

    Overall, No. 3 Stanford held the team lead at 12-under-par, four strokes ahead of No. 1 Alabama. No. 2 Oklahoma State (-4), No. 16 LSU (-3), No. 4 Georgia Tech (-1), No. 28 SMU (E), No. 14 Oklahoma (E), No. 21 UCLA (+3), No. 24 South Carolina (+4) and No. 9 Illinois (+5) rounded out the top-10 team leaders.

    Individually, Stanford's Cameron Wilson held the lead at 6-under-par, one stroke in front of teammate Patrick Rodgers. Talor Gooch of Oklahoma State, Denny McCarthy of Virginia, Charlie Saxon of Oklahoma and Georgia Tech's Ollie Schniederjans were tied for third at -4.

    Ross and Robledo joined Sebastian Cappelen (Arkansas), Paul Dunne (UAB), Robby Shelton (Alabama), Austin Smotherman (SMU), Caleb Sturgeon (South Carolina) and Beau Titsworth (Oklahoma) in a group at -3.
