TEXARKANA – Freshman Thomas Rosenmueller captured All-Tournament team honors with a third-place finish Tuesday and North Texas men’s golf finished third to advance to its second-straight match play event to determine the league champion Wednesday at Texarkana Country Club.
The Mean Green finished the stroke play portion of the championship in a flurry scoring the fifth lowest round of the season at three-under par 285. North Texas moved up one spot and enters match play as the No. 3 seed and will take on the No. 2 seed LA Tech starting at 4:30 p.m. Tuesday afternoon due to pending inclement weather. The winner advances to the finals to face the winner of the UAB (#38) vs. UTSA match.
