(WAIKOLOA, Hawai’i – October 31, 2018) Dixie State closed its 2018 fall season with a seventh place finish at the Hawai’i Hilo/Dennis Rose Intercollegiate on Wednesday at the Waikoloa Beach Kings’ Course.
The Trailblazers (298-290-291) started the final round in seventh place for the second consecutive day and that is where they stayed after carding a 3-over par 291 to finish with a three-round total of plus-15 887. DSU wound up 10 strokes back of sixth-place Cal State Monterey Bay (299-287-283-869, +15) and 11 shots behind both Colorado Christian (293-289-286-868; +4) and Stanislaus State (292-289-286-868, +4) in t-fourth place.
Host Hawai’i Hilo was the lone team in the 15-team field to post a red number as the Vulcans (282-287-288) won the event with a 7-under 857, followed by Western Washington (280-293-291-864, E) in second and Sonoma State (282-299-284-865, +1) in third.
Sophomores Spencer Wallace (74-70-72) and Brock Nielson (73-74-72) led the Trailblazers Wednesday as the duo each fired even par 72s to post top-20 individual finishes, with Wallace placing t-11th at 216 (E), and Nielson t-19th at plus-3 219.
