SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. - Junior Ryan Mulvany shot the lowest round of the day and finished tied for 19th at the Cowboy Classic, hosted by Wyoming.
High Winds cancelled the second round on Monday, and cut the 54-hole tournament down to 36-holes. The same high wind caused a slow start and a high score, but the Wolf Pack came out strong in the final round and shot a two-over 282. Nevada finished with a 43-over 603 and tied for 18th with Northern Colorado.
Mulvany shot a four-under 66 in the final round, the lowest round out of a field of 125 players, and finished tied for 19th with a six-over 146. This is Mulvany's fifth Top-20 finish this season.
Junior Brian Knoll shot a one-over 71 in the final round and finished tied for 56th with a 11-over 151. Sophomore Taylor Knoll shot a one-under 69 and finished tied for 66th with a 12-over 152. Freshman Kit Carson tied for 80th, and sophomore Andrew Cornella finished 125th.
"The boys did a great job bouncing back today," said head coach Jacob Wilner. "I am very proud of them considering the circumstances."
Gonzaga won the tournament with a 14-over 574 after shooting a five-under 275 in the final round. UC Santa Barbara's Glen Scher won the individual race with a two-under 138 for the tournament after shooting a two-under 68 in the final round.
Sophomore Andrew Cornella was disqualified in the final round.
Nevada will be back next week when they head to Auburn, Calif. to play in the Winchester Classic. This will be Wolf Pack's last tournament before the Mountain West Championship in May.
