Hobson, Mustangs win MSU Invitational

Senior Trip Hobson carded three quality rounds to claim top individual honors while leading Midwestern State to a MSU Invitational championship Tuesday afternoon at The Wichita Falls Country Club.

It's the second time the Mustangs claimed win in their home tournament, while Hobson is the second MSU player to claim individual victory. Former All American Derek Oland claimed the 2013 title, while Midwestern took its only other title in 2012.

The Mustangs claimed their first team win since claiming victory at the Arkansas-Fort Smith Lions Classic last spring. It was the program's 13 overall team tournament title.

Hobson did it by excelling at both the shorter and longer holes going 3-under for the tournament on Par-3s and 4-under on the Par-5s. All told, the Crockett, Texas native amassed 11 birdies while piling up 36 pars, but none were more important on than the last.

Hobson drained a 5-footer to get up and down on the 18th hole to hold off the hard charging Nicholas Tenuta. The Regis standout fired a final round 68 to finish within a single stroke of the lead. Hobson's scores of 69, 70 and 70 for a 4-under total of 209 were enough to claim his first collegiate win.

Hobson was joined on the all-tournament team by junior Clayton Keck, who carded scores 74, 67 and 72 for an even-par 213.

Junior Clayton Meyers also notched a Top 10 showing finishing seventh with scores of 72, 69 and 74 for a 1-under total of 215, while fellow junior Chance Craig tied for 15th (73-71-73 217/+1). Freshman Jake Doggett placed 72nd with an 18-over total of 234 (78-73-83).

Midwestern State logged team totals of 288, 277 and 289 for a 2-over 854 to win by seven strokes over Texas A&M-Commerce (289-284-288 861/+9).

Junior Simon Ospina (70-80-76 226/+10) and freshman Conrad Rafferty (80-67-79 226/+10) led a group of four MSU individual medalist performers tying for 48th. Freshman Tayden Wallin (75-79-75 229/+13) and junior Kevin Teems (74-76-79 229/+13) tied for 58th.

Midwestern State wraps up the fall portion of the schedule next week at the Cameron Invitational played at The Territory Golf Club in Duncan on Oct. 23-24.

Record-setting Brennan, Mustangs win Oklahoma Intercollegiate

Freshman Emily Brennan snagged another program record while leading Midwestern State to a team championship Tuesday afternoon at the Oklahoma Intercollegiate played at the par-72, 5,933-yard Fort Sill Golf Course.

The Stoke-on-Trent, England native, who set the program's low round to par with a 5-under 67, notched her second straight and third par-or-better score of the season with a 1-under 71 in the final round to claim her first collegiate individual title. It was the program's 11th overall team title.

Brennan matched Brenna Moore's mark originally set at the 2011 UCO Classic as the lowest 36-hole total in program annals with a 138. Her to-par mark of 6-under stands alone as the best through 36 holes in program history bettering Moore's 4-under effort at the 2014 DBU Women's Classic.

Brennan claimed the win by three strokes over Rogers State's Jess Whitting, who fired a 71 and 70 for a 3-under 141.

The Mustangs claimed their first team title since winning three times in 2015-16 with the last victory coming in the Midwestern State Invitational.

As a team, MSU broke its own low 36-hole total set earlier this season at the TexAnn Fall Classic by a single stroke. The Mustangs logged scores of 285 and 292 for a 1-over total of 577 to win by seven strokes over Tarleton State (292-292 584/+8).

The Mustangs received countable scores from all five spots in the lineup as sophomore Lexi Read finished tied for 13th with scores of 70 and 77 for a 3-over total of 147; senior Sarah Moore (75-73 148/+4) and freshman Juanita Gomez (73-75 148/+4) tied for 17th and freshman Katie Reeves (77-73 150/+6) tied for 25th.

Freshman Laura Sanchez delivered a Top 10 finish playing as an individual medalist firing scores of 72 and 73 for a 1-over total of 145 to tie for eighth.

The Mustangs have wrapped up the fall portion of their schedule. They return to action at St. Mary's Rattler Invitational on Feb. 12-13 at the Dominion Country Club in San Antonio.
