BUILDER BITS

  • The 303 round for the Builders is the ninth lowest round in school history.  The last time the Builders were lower than 303, they shot 300 to open the 2012-13 season with a dual match win over Louisburg College.  It is also the seventh lowest to par round by the Builders.
  • Mutter's round was tied for ninth lowest round under par in school history and matches his lowest round as a Builder.  He also shot 71 as a sophomore at the Tom Kinder Memorial and as a freshman in a two-day dual match with SUNY Delhi.
