Sophomore Jackson Davenport had rounds of 71-71-79=222 (+9), sophomore Trent Tipton recorded scores of 76-74-73=223 (+10) and fifth-year senior Mark Goetz shot 76-75-74=225 (+12). Freshman Max Green competed as an individual and shot 74-80-73=227 (+14).
The Mountaineers finished tied for 10th place, jumping two spots from yesterday, with rounds of 292-284-287=863 (+11).
“Logan and Kurtis stepped up for us big time today,” coach Sean Covich said. “I’m really happy for those guys. This week, we battled back after a bad opening round, so I was glad to see the guys hang in there and battle until the end. We have a few weeks off to practice at Pete Dye and then a big one, the Big 12 Championship.”
The Mountaineers will return to action from April 25-27 at the Big 12 Championship in Trinity, Texas.
