This is the second year in a row that Red Lodge has placed behind Missoula Loyola in the championship. Mullaney has been the team’s low score since he was a freshman.

Individual two-day scores, Matt Mullaney 157, Levi Lynde 181, Parker Vandewark 183, Sam George 188 and Tom Bolkcom 190.

The tournament was played at Big Fork on the Eagle Bend Golf course, which is ranked, in the top 50 curses in the country. Coach Gary Kane said he was “very proud of this team for their accomplishments this year as spring storms left blankets of snow on our course for much of the season, making for limited practices.”
