Ryan Roxburg nearly reached the goal of conference champion – individually and in the team race.
Roxburg’s even-par 72 was just one shot behind medalist Brandon Bowman of Park Hill South.
Truman shot 311 to tie for second with Park Hill, seven shots behind champion Park Hill South.
“Ryan’s had that capability for a while,” Truman coach Becky Costello said. “He’s gotten to a point where he is consistent in his scoring. He eagled No. 11 to put him at 2-under at that point. The first- and third-place guys were in his group. So they were all right there in a head-to-head battle.
“(Bowman) sank a couple of really long putts and that made the difference, or I think Ryan had a shot at being the conference champion.”
Truman’s Cody Kuiper also earned all-conference honors, shooting 78 to tie for seventh overall. Evan Taylor posted an 80 and Eric Eisman shot 81 as both earned honorable mention all-conference honors.
William Chrisman shot 377 to finish sixth, just two shots behind Winnetonka.
Chandler Young led the way for the Bears, shooting a career-low 82 to finish just one stroke away from honorable mention all-conference honors.
“Chandler did a nice job today,” Chrisman coach Bill Jonas said. “He had a bad hole at the end that might have cost him a shot or two, but I’m proud of him for shooting a very good score. He just kept the ball in play and said he putted well.”
Josh Andrae shot 92, while Blaine Allan (101) and Matt Spydell (102) completed the scoring for the Bears.
“This is better than we’ve played the last couple of tournaments,” Jonas said. “It was good to finally be back at full strength.”
