Leading the way for Arizona was junior Henry Liaw, who tallied a two-under 70 and moved into a tie for second place with a 212 (-4) total.  This is Liaw’s lowest tournament total in four events this season and his first top-10 finish of the season.  Teammate Josh Esler posted a top-20 finish with a tie for 14th place.  Esler carded a final round 72 en route to an even par 216.
