NSU finishes in 16th at Mustang Intercollegiate

Published 4/3/18

GOODYEAR, Ariz. – Northeastern State could not make any headway in the final round of the Mustang Intercollegiate and dropped one spot down to 16th scoring an 881 in three rounds.  
A solid start on the back nine by Bryce Newton with a four-under par elevated him into the top-15 individually.  However, his momentum was cut down after shooting a three-over on the second and third pins.  Newton would card a birdie on the fourth pin and finished with a 70 which was two-under for the day.  The NSU senior finished the three-round tournament with a 213 (69-74-70) which landed him tied for 24th place.
The RiverHawks shot a 293 in the final round at the Palm Valley Golf Club which featured 14 scores that were in the sub-70s. 
Hunter Pennington was NSU's second lowest score with a 220 (74-73-73), Matt Willingham had a 222 (74-73-75), and Griffen Matthias carded a 227 (75-76-76); Casey Paul rounded out the NSU five with a 299 (76-78-75).
Dixie State took the overall team championship with an 839 (-25) and won by two shots over Colorado School of Mines.  DSU's Nicklaus Britt was the individual medalist with a 12-under, 204 three round total which featured a 63 on Tuesday.
Northeastern State has one remaining regular season event in Edmond on April 16-17 prior to the MIAA Championships.
