In preparation for next week’s conference tournament, the UTSA men’s team took a trip to Bryan, Texas, April 9-10, to get the clubs swinging one last time. In the 12-team field, the Roadrunners finished 11th. 

With the conclusion of the first round, the ‘Runners had already fallen behind to 10th place with a score of 309 as a team, with six of the teams ahead of them in the tournament being nationally ranked. Hunter Bott led the Roadrunners by placing 37th, including a 76 in the opening round. Bott’s 78 in the final round helped the ‘Runners finish 14 shots ahead of Northern Illinois with a 938 (309-311-318) and nine behind Kent State. 

Behind Bott’s team-leading 234, Jack Wehman tied for 52nd with a 237 (78-77-82) with four birdies. Michael Rome came in third for UTSA tying 60th overall with a 239 (77-73-89). The ‘Runner’s remaining men placed 64th, 71st and 73rd, respectively. David Harrison had a team-high six birdies and Reed Foster played in the tournament as an individual.
