“I give credit to our kids, we went from 16th place to second and our guys played hard and never lost focus or confidence,” UW Head Coach Joe Jensen said. “Our golfers play hard for the program, and they represent our school and state. This group took it one day at a time and at the end of the day players play. Since school started, we have played a lot of rounds and they have battled and hung in there as a team. This group is happy for each other and chipped away together and this is a special team. For myself, I’m lucky to be surrounded by a great team, staff and community.”

Jaren Calkins led the way for the Pokes on Tuesday firing a 68 (-4) for the fifth lowest round of the day. He finished tied for 17th with teammate Patrick Azevedo, as he finished with a 71 (-1) on Tuesday and a three-round score of even par.
