It marked Iten’s second career medalist honors and first since 2011. A two-time All-OVC selection, Iten currently ranks sixth in the OVC in stroke average (73.0).

The Niederglatt, Switzerland native has been the Governors best finisher in all three spring tournaments that also includes fourth place at the Wexford Plantation Intercollegiate, after owning APSU’s best finish (4th) to wrap up the fall in the F&M Bank APSU Intercollegiate.

With his strong finish in Florida, Iten now has moved up to 244th in the most recent Golfstat player rankings.
