The Crusaders as a team, finished 4th, behind Senior Ty Wilson's 79 (+7) on the day. Ty finished 6th after a 4-way tie at 79, winning the scorecard playoff. Blake Saffell finished with an 80, after a very tough first hole, Blake leveled out and played well. Senior Blake Bales came in at 83, showing good consistency and steady play. Jace Lawrence played well also, shooting an 85. (Saffell and Lawrence are both Freshman) Senior Jaylen Harris held on well, finishing with a 98. Sophomore Rylan Blasi finished with a 101.
Anyone outdoors Monday knows it wasn't an ideal day for golf. The 1st place finisher came in at 70, which was amazing considering the conditions.
