Junior Carl Yuan finished with the best score for the Huskies with a 9-over 222 to tie for 25th place. He saved his best round for last, shooting 4-under 67 after going over par on his first two rounds.
Freshman Noah Woolsey followed close behind Yuan, finishing in a tie for 28th with a score of 10-over 223 after breaking even on his final round.
The lone senior in the team competition for the Huskies, Frank Garber, finished tied for 60th. A triple-bogey in his final round wiped out two birdies early on, and he finished at 18-over 231 on the tournament.
Freshman Jan Schneider had an opposite time as Garber, starting his second day with two double-bogeys in the first six holes, but making up ground with three birdies and an eagle. He finished 19-over 232 to tie for 64th.
Sophomore Henry Lee rounded out the UW team score with a 23-over 236 over the three rounds.
