Junior Bill Carlson shot a 75 in the open­ing round and finished strongly, shooting a 73 in the final round to lead the Bison. Carl­son’s effort was good enough to land him in 14th place individually for the tournament.

Redshirt junior Ursinio Puga tied for 22nd place, shooting a Bison-leading 71 in the opening round. Puga finished the sec­ond round with a score of 80 to put him at a 7-over 151.

Trent Olson finished third for the Bison, shooting a 77 and 83 through the two rounds to put him in a tie for 49th place with a 160. Connor Holland finished a single stroke shy of matching Olson with scores of 82 and 79 and Kyle Jandro rounded out the Bison top five with a total score of 167.

The Bison as a whole shot a 304 in the first round and a 315 in the final to finish with a 619.
