U-News Staff

Coming off the back of a first place victory in the KU invitational, the UMKC men’s golf team entered the Louisiana Tech Squire Creek Classic looking for its second straight win. The Roos competed on Oct. 3-4 in Rushton, La., against 12 other teams over 54 holes (three rounds) and finished 10th overall.

The team struggled to gain any momentum in the tournament, falling behind early. The opening day’s two rounds saw them post scores of 298 and 304.

The Roos finished the final round with a score of 301. For the first time this season, UMKC failed to have a player shoot under par. Sophomore Korbin Kuehn tied for 25th with a score of 222 (74,76,72), and senior Will Robson tied for 32nd scoring 224 (77,74,73). Sophomore Jack Fiscus tied for 45th place with a score of 228 (73,79,76). The Roos will host their only fall tournament, The Bill Ross Invitational, Oct. 17-18 at Milburn Country Club in Overland Park, Kan.
