KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The Creighton men's golf team finished sixth at the Bill Ross Intercollegiate in Kansas Cirty, Mo., on Tuesday. The Jays put together rounds of 299, 293 and 307 for an 899 total in the two-day, three round event held at the par-72, 7,098-yard Blue Hills Country Club. Central Arkansas fired an 876 to win the event.
Junior Austin Miller was the Jays' top finisher. He sandwiched a second-round, one-under-par 71 between a first-round 73 and a final-round 77 for a 221 total, good enough for a tie for 11th place. Miller's second-round score was his third round of par or better this year and the sixth of his career.
Fellow Creighton junior Jack Dressen finished only three strokes off Miller's pace. He carded rounds of 75, 72 and 77 to finish in a tie for 18th place. Junior Kevin Stanek and freshman Collin Craft both tied for 37th after firing identical 230s. Stanek used rounds of 74, 77 and 79, while Craft carded rounds of 77, 76 and 77. Rounding out the Jays' team scoring was junior Ben Lowman, who tied for 47th after rounds of 82, 74 and 76.
The tournament was Creighton's final of the fall season. The Bluejays will be back in action in the spring.
