VICTORIA —  Led by a season-best 13th-place finish from senior Lewis Chong, UTSA placed 10th at the Jim West Intercollegiate, which wrapped up on Tuesday at Victoria Country Club (par 72, 6,870 yards).

Chong fired a three-over-par 75 on Tuesday to follow a pair of 73s in the first two rounds and finished the three-day tournament at five-over 221. The 13th-place showing bettered his previous season-best of 19th at October's Kauai Collegiate Invitational. The 221 marked his second-best 54-hole score of the season behind a 218 posted at the Rice Intercollegiate in February.

Sophomore Mitchell Griffin was two shots behind Chong and he finished tied for 19th. The Driftwood native matched Chong with a pair of 73s on the first two days before carding a final-round 77 to finish at seven-over 223.

Freshman Ryan Werre tied for 46th with a 230 (75-76-79), while sophomores Nicko Dodd and Austin Struble placed 77th (77-82-82=241) and 82nd (81-86-81=248), respectively.
The Roadrunners placed 10th with a 914 (298-304-312), just ahead of Houston’s 919. Louisiana Tech won the team crown with an 863 (287-289-287), while Southeastern Louisiana (871) and UT Arlington (878) rounded out the top three. Southeastern Louisiana's Philipp Westermann won the individual title with a seven-under 209 (70-68-71).
UTSA has a short turnaround before its next tournament, as the Roadrunners will travel to Bryan to compete in the Aggie Invitational on Saturday-Sunday, April 16-17.
