AUSTIN, Texas – A thunderstorm rolled into the Austin area around 10:30 and eventually forced the cancellation of the final round of the Jim West Intercollegiate. ORU officially finishes the tournament sixth at 597 (293-286), five shots back of champion Rice, who shot 574 (289-285) in what ended as a 36-hole tournament.

News and Notes
- The Jim West Intercollegiate is the second tournament this season to get cut short as ORU also played just 36 holes at The Border Olympics in early March.

- ORU has shot 10 consecutive rounds under 300.

- Cody Burrows earned his second top five finish of the season, following up his runner-up finish at the Bob Sitton Invitational.

- Although Burrows was the top finisher for ORU, it was Hunter Laughlin who posted the best individual round, carding a second round 69, his best round of the year by two strokes.

- With Laughlin (-3) and Burrows (-1) each finishing the second round under par, ORU had two players in the red in the same round for the first time this season.
