Men’s Golf competes at Highland Meadows Intercollegiate tournament

Men’s Golf made its first appearance this week at Bowling Green’s tournament at Highland Meadows Golf Club among many other strong teams. This was the Bison’s final event before the Patriot League Championship, which will be hosted by Lehigh. 

After the first day of the tournament, the Bison were in ninth place, despite posting a strong start. They secured a 6-over-par 290 in the first round and then scored a 301 in round two. 

Andres Barraza ’26 was a standout athlete, earning the Patriot League Golfer of the Week Award. On the first day of the invitational, Barraza started strong with a 3-under 68 and then scored a 73 in the afternoon round. Following those two rounds he was tied for 14th place at 1-under 141. 

In the third round, Barraza posted a 69 to finish with a 3-under-par 210 over the entire tournament. In both his first and third rounds he made five birdies, and in the second round, he had three. Barraza is one of five players to finish at 3-under and one of 17 to finish under par this week.
