BRYAN — Freshman Ryan Werre tied for seventh place to lead the UTSA men's golf team to an 11th-place finish at the Aggie Invitational, which concluded Sunday at the Traditions Club (par 72, 7146 yards).

One day after turning in the tournament's low round of six-under-par 66, Werre carded an even-par 72 and finished in a tie with Texas A&M's Ignacio Elvira for seventh in the 72-player field with a one-over 217 (66-79-72). He recorded 10 birdies and an eagle in the 54-hole event in recording his top finish of his debut campaign.

The Roadrunners placed 11th with an 1,192 (390-405-397), taking the top five scores in each round from a six-player squad. No. 9 Texas A&M won the team title with a 1,085 (370-359-356), while No 1 Oklahoma State (1,102) and No. 17 Texas Tech (1,114) rounded out the top three. Oklahoma State's Peter Uihlein won the individual crown with a 210 (72-67-71).

Sophomore Mitchell Griffin tied for 41st with a 231 (75-77-79), while senior Lewis Chong tied for 54th with a 236 (77-77-82). Sophomore Austin Struble was 69th (82-87-81=250), freshman Xabier Basanaz finished 71st (98-85-83=266) and sophomore Taylor Koser placed 72nd (90-87-93=270).

UTSA will return to the course next Monday-Wednesday, April 25-27, when they compete at the Southland Conference Championship in Arlington.
