Sprinkling led UC-Davis to a tie for third and posted a 4-under-par 212 total to capture his second win of the season at the Fresno State Lexus Golf Classic, held at Belmont Country Club in Fresno, Calif. Colin Featherstone of San Diego State, Nick Taylor of Washington, and Todd Angel of Fresno State finished tied for second at 2-under-par.

At the Ron Smith/USF Invitational (Lake Jovita Golf Club, Dade City, Fla.), Stauch earned co-medalist honors with Santiago Rivas of Texas Tech.

Mike Van Sickle of Marquette finished third at 6-under-par, while Erik Barnes of Austin Peay, Nils Floren of Texas Tech, and Rick Cochran of Middle Tennessee State finished tied for fourth at 4-under-par.

Vanderbilt notched its first win of the season behind Haselden’s 3-under-par 213 performance.

Carlos Sainz, Jr. of Mississippi State finished second at 2-under-par, while Jason Cuthbertson of Arkansas, Jon Curran of Vanderbilt, and Will Collins of Virginia finished tied for third at 1-under-par.
