Lohwater led the Bison and finished in a tie for 10th overall out of the 110 players in the field. Alongside him was Maddaloni who made five birdies which helped lead him to his final score of 3-under-par 69, a career-best for the first year. He finished 1-over for the tournament. Blake Wisdom ’23 came in third for the Bison with a 3-over 219 after shooting a solid final round of 2-under 70. Michael Rudnick ’25, another first-year, finished with a 6-over 222 and rounded out the weekend with an even 72.
