Lion men place sixth at Hillcat Classic.

OWASSO, Okla. – The Texas A&M University-Commerce men’s golf team finished the Rogers State Hillcat Classic in sixth place after Tuesday’s final round.

The Lions shot 897 (299-290-308, +45) in the event, which was their first in nearly a month after a weather cancellation earlier this month. Host institution Rogers State won with an 879.

“The course conditions were tough today. This team needs to learn how to overcome adversity and come back after a tough stretch,” said Lion head golf coach Matt Ward. “As we enter into our final stretch before the conference, we have our work cut out for us. We have the talent to play well in these last few tournaments and give ourselves a shot at the postseason.”

Lucas McCubbin (Midland) was the Lions’ top finisher in 11th place at 223 (+10, 75-71-77). Joe Wolcik (Cleveland – Tarkington) had the Lions’ best round of the day with a 75, notching two birdies. He finished in a tie with Garrett Landers (Sulphur Springs) in 36th place at 233 for the tournament.

Zach Burch (Lubbock – Cooper) and Blake Hartford (Spring – Klein Collins) finished up one stroke behind McCubbin in 13th place at 224 (+11). Both players had two birdies in Tuesday’s round.

The Lions return to action at the DBU Classic at Irving’s Hackberry Creek Country Club on April 1-2..
