“It was a great day for the players today,” head coach Dave Johnson said. “We had all five guys at either par or under par. That’s a hard thing to do in team golf – all five guys playing well at one time.”

Blinn will play in the University of Houston-Victoria Fall Classic on Oct. 17-19 at The Club at Colony Creek.
