The tournament, which concludes tomorrow, consists of 18 holes per day.

WSU finished ahead of ranked No. 39 Oregon (+5, 289) and No. 16 Washington (+9, 293). The Ducks and Huskies finished sixth and tied for ninth, respectively. Missouri currently sits at the top of the tournament with a score of (-3, 281) after the first 18 holes.

Senior Blake Snyder led the Washington State team hitting three strokes under par (68), and one stroke behind a first place.

Senior Jarrett Foote notched the second-best effort on the day, finishing 1-over (72) and tied for 15th.  Junior Michael Anderson carded a 73(+2) tying for 27th. Junior Charlie Mroz and redshirt junior Alex Wagner sit two strokes behind Anderson, finishing the day 4-over par (75) which was good enough for 46th place.

The overall leader was Emilio Cuartero of Missouri who finished 4-under (67).

“Overall it was a good starting round,” WSU Head Coach Garrett Clegg said in a press release. “Blake played well. The course is very challenging, mostly because of the weather conditions. Everyone played solid. It’s great to be ahead of some teams, but there’s still a long ways to go.”
