MONKEY ISLAND, Okla. — The MSSU Fall Invitational Tournament, designated as the first mandated MIAA event of the season, was cut short due to weather conditions on Tuesday (Sept. 24). Results were made official based off Monday's 36 holes of golf. The FHSU men finished 8th among MIAA schools and 17th overall.
Fort Hays State saw a very competitive field. Nine of the top 10 teams finished better than +10 overall as a team. Oklahoma Christian won the tournament by scoring 12-under par as a team (564). All of the top 24 individuals finished with a score of even-par or better. Kason Cook of Southwestern Oklahoma State finished first individually after a 70 and 66 rounds, good for an 8-under performance at Shangri-La Country Club, a par-72 venue.
FHSU shot 616 for the tournament as a team, posting a 301 in round one and 315 in round two. Sophomore Bryce Cowan led the team by shooting 72 (E) and 74 (+2), tying for 29th individually at 2-over par. Cowan tied for 12th among MIAA competitors in the field playing as official scoring members of their team and not as individuals. Cole Gritton was right behind Cowan, finishing with a 4-over par 148 (72, 76). Gritton's score was good enough for a top 40 finish in the field (T-39th).
Pete Carney finished with rounds of 80 and 79. Chandler Roberts shot a 77 for the first round and followed with an 86 for a 168 individually. Isaiah Grover carded an 85 and 86 for a 171 final score.
