"Joseph had a consistent fall season for us and a solid plus-two on the day to finish out the tournament," MacIntyre said.

Added MacIntyre said "Mora had a good tournament and showed flashes of what he can do. Look forward to watching him and Katie Fagg on the women's side develop and become leaders in our program."

Josh Neth tied for 29th after firing a 233 over three rounds. Neth went 75-79-79.

All the guys shot rounds in the 70s today and it is something to build off of as we aim to get better ad get after it in the spring season.
