Bailey Flickinger and Xavier Coreno both carded well-executed rounds of 3 over par 75. Dylan Otto and Morgan Cooper finalized the scoring for the Tigers by posting good rounds of 76. The win moved the Tigers to 12-0 in the Big 8 Conference, and 12-0 overall. The Tigers now have 4 of the Top 6 players in the Big 8 South Division Individual Standings.
