(ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – October 2, 2018) Dixie State’s men’s golf team recorded its second top-five finish of the 2018-19 season with a third-place showing at the Western New Mexico Fall Intercollegiate on Tuesday at the UNM Championship Course.

The Trailblazers (300-295-303-898; +34), who started the day six shots out of the lead in second place, briefly led during their final round before being passed by the host Mustangs (294-295-296-885; +21) and eventual runner-up Lubbock Christian (298-302-296-896; +32) on the leaderboard. Fellow RMAC members Colorado Mesa (301-302-299-902; +38) and Colorado School of Mines (294-305-303-902; +38) finished in a three-way tie for fourth along with Texas A&M-Commerce (300-301-301; +38).  


Freshman Triston Gardner (79-72-69-220; +4) carded the Blazers low round of the tourney with a 3-under 69 to post his second-straight top-10 showing as he finished tied for eighth overall, while senior Nicklaus Britt (72-76-74-222; +6) fired a two-over 74 on his final loop en route to a season-best t-12th place result. Freshman Noah Schone (72-78-75-225; +9) finished in solo 18th after a final round 3-over 75, followed by sophomore Spencer Wallace (77-73-85-235; +19) in t-64th place, and freshman Grant Wilson (82-74-89-245; +29) in t-93rd place.

Dixie State will return home to host the 2018 DSU Fall Regional Preview on Oct. 15-16, at The Ledges Golf Club.
