Men's Golf Misses Team Cut By One Stroke at the 2018 NCAA Tournament; Eric Dugas Makes Cut

GREENSBORO, N.C. – The Husson men's golf team competed in the second round of the 2018 NCAA Division III Championship on Wednesday and carded a 301 after finishing their first round play early Wednesday morning with a 307. The Eagles then went on to played the par-72, 6780-yard West Course at the Grandover Resort and finished tied for 19th with a 608 (307-301), missing the team cut by one stroke, resulting in the program's best team finish at a National Championship in 16 years.

Following the first two rounds of play, the field was cut to the top 18 teams and six individuals not on an advancing team. Husson's freshman Eric Dugas made the cut as an individual after carding a 147 (75-72), placing him in a tie for 32nd. He becomes the first freshman and the third golfer in program history to make the cut at a National Championship that cuts the field after the first two rounds of play. It marks the second straight season Husson has had a golfer make the cut, as junior Gavin Dugas qualified last season.

G. Dugas carded a 150 (75-75) and finished tied for 56th, while juniors Mackenzie Clow (78-80), Taylor Morang (83-75) and Daulton Wickenden (79-79) all tied for 134th with a 158.

Action continues on Thursday with the third round from the Grandover Resort.
