Laredo, Texas - Senior Tim Madigan tied for third overall after a final round score of 7-under par, 65, at the Border Olympics Golf Tournament. Madigan shot three straight rounds of under par golf on the weekend and finished 11-under par, 205.

"We had a great round of golf today as a team," head coach Scott Lieberwirth said. "I thought both Tim and Gaston played great and finished out strong. We got some help from Joon today as well and we didn't have to count a high score. Our 3-4-5 players finally scored the way he needed them too. I think this tournament will help us spring board into our final two tournaments."
