Middle Tennessee State is 2-0 after two games in the spring season. After winning the Pat Hicks Thunderbird Invitational earlier in the month to kick off the spring season, the Blue Raiders held off Utah Valley to win the Loyola Intercollegiate by one shot on Feb. 22.
Middle Tennessee State, which is ranked No. 81 in the Golfweek/Sagarin College Rankings, shot a 54-hole total of 29 under par at Palm Valley Golf Club in Goodyear, Arizona.
Kevin Jegers, a sophomore, was responsible for a large portion of that red number, playing 16 under par on his own to win the individual title by three shots. Michael Barnard (sixth) and Owen Stamper (T-10) both contributed significantly.
In a school statement, head coach Mark McEntire commented, “Great win for the team.” “I’m overjoyed to win my second game of the spring. Kevin Jegers deserves a pat on the back for breaking the record last week and again this week. He’s a total stud. We’re taking a few weeks off, but we’ll be back in action at the Schenkel in the middle of March.”
Middle Tennessee’s excellent fall season continued with a runner-up performance at the J.T. Poston Invitational and a T-3 result at the Trinity Forest Invitational.
