LAREDO — Sophomore Ryan Werre tied for 23rd to lead UTSA to a 14th-place showing at the Border Olympics, which concluded Saturday at Laredo Country Club (par 72/7,319 yards).
Werre registered four of his nine birdies in shooting a final-round two-over-par 74. The Redcliff, Alberta, native turned in a 224 (73-77-74) to finish as the top Roadrunner for the fifth consecutive tournament.
Junior Taylor Koser was the Roadrunners' second-highest finisher, as he tied for 50th with a 230 (77-75-78). Meanwhile, junior Stanton Tondre tied for 62nd with a 233 (75-80-78) and junior Mitchell Griffin and redshirt freshman Martin Board tied
for 73rd (237=81-76-80) and 77th (238=79-80-79).
UTSA carded a two-day total of 921 (304-308-309), which was just three shots behind Eastern Michigan and five shy of Rice for 12th. Lamar took the team crown with an 870 (293-289-288), while No. 31 Baylor was second (875) and host Houston (888) rounded out the top three.
