Huskies Season Ends at 2021 NCAA Cle Elum Regionals
CLE ELUM, Wash. – Washington's 2020-21 season came to an end on Wednesday as the Dawgs finished tied for seventh at the 2021 NCAA Cle Elum Regionals with a score of 15-over 867 (280-282-305). The top five teams to advance out of Tumble Creek Golf Club were East Tennessee State, San Francisco, Wake Forest, Pepperdine and Florida. Additionally, Tristan Mandur of Utah advanced as the top individual on a non-advancing team.
"We're obviously very disappointed in how this season had to end," said head coach Alan Murray. "The guys gave it their all and played their hearts out so right now it's just very raw. We had the worst type of round you could have at the exact worst time to have it. There wasn't a chance for us to bounce back and it's just hard to end the season like this, especially for our super senior Henry Lee. We will just have to learn from this and be ready to go when the bell rings next season."
Washington's final round was a tough go as the Dawgs finished with a 21-over for the day. Freshman Teddy Lin led the charge finishing his first regionals as a Husky with a 4-over 217 to tie for 21st. Lin posted scores of 1-under 70 during rounds one and two and closed with a 5-over 77.
Senior Jan Schneider had UW's best scorecard on Wednesday as he carded a 4-over 75 to finish tied for 22nd overall with a 4-over 217 (72-70-75). Schneider opened the day with five-straight pars but three errors with a birdie sandwiched in between had him make the turn at 3-over. He added two more birdies before going 1-under over the final six holes to finish at 4-over.
Senior Henry Lee and sophomore Petr Hruby each tied for 33rd with overall scores of 6-over 219. Lee finished with rounds of 72-70-77 while Hruby had UW's best round of the event with a 5-under 66 during Monday's first 18. Senior Noah Woolsey closed out the UW group as he finished tied for 56th with a 12-over 225 (77-72-76).
