 Carter ties for fourth place at one-under 209


TUCSON, Ariz. ?- The University of Arizona men’s golf junior varsity shot an even-par 280 Tuesday to finish in sixth place at the Wyoming Cowboy Classic in Scottsdale, Ariz.


Led by sophomore Brett Carter, Arizona posted its low round of the tournament en route to a three-round total of 855 (+15) and a sixth place finish in the field of 20.  It marked the fifth time in six tournaments this season that the UA junior varsity has finished in the top half of the field against varsity competition.  Texas-El Paso won the event by seven strokes over host Wyoming as UC-Davis (848), UCLA B (849) and Utah (854) occupied the top-five places.


Carter, a sophomore from Phoenix, Ariz., shot a final-round 69 (-1) to secure a tie for fourth place at 209 (-1).  For Cater, it marked his first career top-10 finish and was his low tournament total in five career appearances.  He was the only Wildcat to finish the 54 holes under par.  Utah’s Steve Newren captured individual medalist honors with a three-under 207 tally.


Brian Prouty claimed his third top-20 finish of the season with a tie for 16th place.  The sophomore carded 73, 71 and 69 en route to his three-over total of 213.  Sophomore Ben Marsh finished tied for 42nd place after totaling a three-round total of 218 (+8).


Freshman Tyler Neal, who equaled a season low with a second-round 69, tied for 47th place at 219 (+9).  Sophomore Mark Lamb tied for 63rd place after shooting an 11-over 221.


The 54-hole Wyoming Cowboy Classic was contested at Talking Stick Golf Club’s North Course, a par 70, 7,133-yard layout.  The Arizona varsity will next be in action on April 15-16 at the U.S. Collegiate Championships in Palo Alto, Calif.
