CITY OF INDUSTRY, Calif. -- Redshirt freshman Mark Jensma and senior Dakota Duerr each finished with a 1-under-par 71 to finish two shots off the lead and help pace host Cal State Fullerton to a fourth-place finish after round one of the 2013 Folino Invitational Presented by the Automobile Club of Southern California on Sunday at the Industry Hills Golf Club.

Jensma, competing as an individual, finished with a first-round best six birdies -- including one-under on three of the four par fives -- while Duerr played steady golf, posting two birdies on the day to join his teammate.
