No. 20 Golf Finishes Third At Oredigger Invite

LAKEWOOD – The No. 20 Colorado School of Mines golf squad could not repeat its success from the second round on Monday, and ended up finishing third at the Oredigger Invite (RMAC No. 2) at the Fox Hollow Golf Course in Lakewood on Tuesday.

Mines finished with a team score of 288 to finish at even par on the third round which matched their first round from Monday morning. 

Fort Lewis took the team title by 12 strokes after posting matching 283's during the second and third round after opening with a 274 (-8).

Mines' third-place finish snapped a streak of four-straight team titles during regular-season play that dated back to a win at the Bob Writz Invitational at Fox Hollow on April 2, 2012.

Freshman John Ahern and sophomore Jordan Arndt led the team with scores of 211 to finish in a tie for 10th overall. 

Junior Michael Lee finished 18th overall after a final-round 71 which left him four strokes out of the top 10 overall.

Kyle Grassel posted a 76 on Tuesday to finish in a tie for 27th overall while Adam Saban closed out his tournament with a 73 to finish in a tie for 46th overall on the individual leaderboard.

Chad Herges and Joe Schwark finished in a tie for 19th overall as individuals after both posted scores of 216 during the tournament.

Also as an individual, freshman Nick Berry carded a 221 over the three rounds to finish in a tie for 36th overall.

Mines will be back in action on October 1-2 at the Golfweek Division II Preview at the Sunriver Golf Club in Bend, Ore.
