MCKINNEY, Texas - The ULM men’s golf team had another solid performance to finish in third place of the Jim West Intercollegiate, hosted by Texas State.

“It was difficult conditions with winds gusting up to 35mph but the guys hung in there and posted a decent score,” said head coach Walt Williams.

The Warhawks lost only to No. 10 Virginia and by just four strokes to Big 12 team Iowa State.

After two very strong rounds on the first day of competition, ULM posted an 8-over 296 in the final round to card a 12-under 852. The Warhawks finished in front of 11 strong teams, including two teams, Central Arkansas and FGCU, ranked ahead of them coming into the tournament and fellow Sun Belt schools UT-Arlington, UALR and tournament host, Texas State.

ULM’s Mason Seaborn shot his third under-par round of the tournament to finish 10-under and in a tie for fifth, while Velten Meyer rounded out the top 10 of individual competition with a 5-under 211.

“Mason played great in the conditions and finished 5th! Velten followed up last week’s win with a solid top 10,” said Williams “we have a couple weeks now before we head down to Biloxi for the Sun Belt Championship.”

The Sun Belt Conference Championship is scheduled to begin Monday, April 21st.
