Final Results 

VALENTINE, Neb. –
In a field of elite competition, the Boise State men’s golf team battled to a tied for fourth place finish at The Jackrabbit, Tuesday.

“We came out of the gates looking great today,” head coach Dan Potter said. “Unfortunately, we just didn’t quite sprint across the finish line. We’ll learn a lot from this week. For starters, we learned that we are good enough to compete anywhere we’ll go this year. Second, we learned that we need to maintain our poise all the way to the finish line when we have opportunities l6ike today.

“This was a great event for our team, and we’ll get better from it.”
