Junior Johnny Antle was the only Patriot to post three consecutive rounds in the 70’s on Monday and Tuesday, as cold and windy conditions yielded high scores for the entire tournament field.  Antle recorded a final round 79 on Tuesday to conclude his tournament play tied for 31st with a three day total of 229, respectively (73-77-79).

After posting stellar rounds of 69 and 76 on day one, Senior Jeffrey Juillerat struggled to break 80 on Tuesday, posting a final round 86 en route to a 37th individual finish.  Senior Austin Struble (76-73-83), Sophomore Jamie Youree (76-80-79), and Thacker (89-83-78) rounded out the Patriots’ efforts.

The Patriots will be back in action next week as they travel to Chico, California, to compete in Chico State University’s golf tournament.
