TUCSON, Ariz. – Boise State senior Scott Spiewak made the most of his final round as a Bronco, firing a 3-under-par 68 to move into a tie for fifth place at the Mountain West Men’s Golf Championships, Sunday.

Spiewak’s final-round score at the par-71, 7,144-yard Catalina Course at OMNI Tucson National was tied for the third-lowest in the field on the final day, and moved him from a tie for 14th into the top five.

His three-round total of 211 (-2) is tied for the second-lowest at a conference championship in Boise State history, and his individual finish is tied for the eighth-best by a Bronco at a league tournament all-time.

The finish marked Spiewak’s third top-10 effort of the season, and his sixth in the top 25. His scoring average of 72.69 during his final collegiate campaign is the seventh-best mark in Boise State single-season history.

The Broncos posted a team score of 871 (+19) in their MW Championships debut, finishing in sixth place. The total was 11 strokes clear of Air Force, and 20 strokes ahead of Wyoming.

The three-day team total was just five strokes shy of the school record at a league tournament.

“This group really showed what it was capable of through 14 holes, but it was very good play to end our season,” head coach Kevin Burton said.

Junior Clayton Kosanovich carded a 1-under 70 in the final round, finishing with a three-round total of 223 (+10). Redshirt sophomore Jordan Skyles finished with a three-round total of 222 (+9), missing the top 25 by one stroke. Playing in his first conference championship tournament, freshman Jon VanDyk carded a 54-hole total of 224 (+11).

Junior Taeksoo Kim finished with a three-round total of 226 (+13), and his scoring average on the season (72.72) is the eighth-best in school history.
