ST. JOSEPH, Mo. – Washburn golf picked up its third win of the season on Tuesday after a dreary weather forecast and soggy course conditions forced the final day of the Holiday Inn Express Classic hosted by Missouri Western to be canceled. The Ichabods claimed the victory over 17 other teams as they shot even-par, 284 on the first day of competition and won by three strokes.
Blake Allen and Ian Trebilcock finished in a tie for second place after firing off a two-under par, 69 in the first round. Andrew Beckler was close behind and shot one-under par and finished in a tie for sixth place. Jared Burns and Griffin Mott both carded a five-over par, 76 and tied for 54th place.
Competing as an individual, Nathan Roy shot six-over par and tied for 65th place.
Claiming the individual title, Lucas Horseman of Missouri Western turned in a first round four-under par, 67.
The final tournament of the fall season will be held next week at the Lincoln Blue Tiger Invitational on Oct. 15-16 in Jefferson City, Mo.
