The Govs finished 10th at 901 (301-294-306); UT Martin (855) won the team event, with Nick Wolf and Troy’s Brent Hamm tying for the individual title.

Austin Peay State University did a solid job getting up-and-down, with 170 pars (third-most in the field) but sank a tournament-low 25 birdies.

Busse and Lancaster both fired 74s to close out the event; Lancaster was one over on both the front and back nines, while Busse was nine-for-nine in front-nine pars. The duo were Austin Peay State University’s top finishers, with Lancaster at 222 (77-71-74) and Busse at 224 (75-75-74), with the latter aided by a tournament-high 41 pars.

Alex Vegh (74-79-76—229) led the APSU Govs with a 4.92 stroke average on par-5 holes. Chase Korte (75-76-82—233) and Micah Knisley (84-74-80—238) rounded out the lineup for the Govs, with Knisley’s eight birdies a team-high, including one of just six in the entire tournament on the tricky 213-yard par-3 at No. 16.

Playing as the individual, Morgan Robinson shot a 232 (74-81-77) and tied Lancaster and Busse with a team-best 3.25 stroke average on par-3 attempts.

The APSU Govs will keep it local for the next two events, beginning with a trip to Greystone Golf Club in Dickson, Tennessee; rather than hosting the F&M Bank APSU Intercollegiate, they’ll be competing in a Murray State-hosted event, April 5th-6th.
