Valparaiso turned in consistent rounds of 305 and 306 for a day one total of 611 on day one of the Butler Fall Invitational held Monday at Eagle Creek Golf Course in Indianapolis, Ind.

The Crusaders enter the final round of the 54-hole event three shots in front of IUPUI and 11 behind Bradley.  Green Bay leads the tournament at eight-under par 560.

Michael Hesselman (Janesville, Wis./Edgerton H.S.) led the Crusaders on the opening day with rounds of 71 and 75 to tie for 24th overall at 146.  His even par round of 71 in the morning matched his low round of the season.
