Over the two-day tournament, senior Kyle McAbee shot the best score for the Eagles, carding a 147 overall to tie for a 17th place individual finish. Close behind him was fellow senior Dominic Ariondo, who came in one shot behind his teammate with a 148 to finish 24th.

Senior Austin Bishop and junior Kaden Page each recorded a 151 overall for 39th place followed by senior Ben Crumley with a 158 for 59th place.

The Eagles finished eighth overall in the team competition with a score of 595, one shot above Pomona-Pitzer College and 11 shots behind The Master’s University and Marymount California University, who tied for sixth.
