Freshman Andrew Hozza shot his second straight 73 on the Weyhill Course to take medalist honors among the 15 golfers, making his career low. Hozza had four birdies and 10 pars in his one-over par round. Senior Nick Kuhn finished as the runner-up with a two-over par round of 74 that included two birdies and 13 pars while junior Thomas Lakata was 10th with 83 and eight pars.
