Missouri City, Texas – Rice University golfers set four new season lows as they wrapped up the Houston Baptist Husky Invitational on Tuesday. Competing individually, four student-athletes left their mark at the three-round event hosted at Houston-area Quail Valley Golf Club.
Senior Brandon Burke paced the Owls with a 78-72-74-224 (+1) to finish in a tie for 21st place. His second-round 72 was Burke’s lowest round of the fall, as was his 54-hole total 224.
Sophomore Tommy Economou improved in each round and also registered a season low on his overall score, taking 39th place at 81-79-72-232 (+9). His previous low total was 239, set at the Mason Rudolph Championship.
Ryan Benevides bounced back from last weekend’s Lone Star Invitational to finish 47th with a 76-83-78-237 (+14). The sophomore’s opening-round 76 was a season low, after withdrawing early at last week’s tournament due to illness.
Freshman Trey Johnson returned to the Rice lineup for the first time since the season opener and claimed 50th place with an 82-79-79-240 (+17).
“The HBU Husky Invitational was a great way for Ryan, Tommy, Trey, and Brandon to get a little bit of experience, playing in a college tournament, play unattached from a team, and get their competitive juices flowing,” head coach Justin Emil noted after the event. “It was a great opportunity for them and I’m excited that they got that opportunity.”
Host Houston Baptist claimed the team title at 838 (-14), led by Andy Ariens’ 205 (-8) to win the individual medal. Florida Atlantic took home second place at 871 (+19).
Rice officially concludes its fall slate on Nov. 5-6 at the Redwolves Fall Beach Classic in Gulf Shores, Ala.
