ARLINGTON, Texas- The men’s golf team is atop the leaderboard this week, as Paul McConnell leads at the Fighting Irish Gridiron Classic in South Bend, Indiana.
McConnell shot a tournament-best 2-under-par in his opening round to help propel the Mavericks into third place overall in the tournament. Senior Hunter Brown finished even and freshman Riley Fleming completed the opner with a score of 72, 1-over-par.
“It was a cold, wet windy day today, but we were able to finish right before dark," UT Arlington head golf coach Jay Rees said. "We had about six-eight birdies at the end of the day to close the gap and move into one shot behind Michigan State and Houston so we had a great finish. It was a positive day."
UTA is third overall in the tournament after the first round.
McConnell opens his second round today at 12:06 p.m. Live in-progress scoring is available on Golfstat’s website for the Fighting Irish Classic throughout the entire tournament.
Volleyball returns home after 0-2 trip
UTA’s volleyball team returns home for a four-game home stand that begins Thursday night at College Park Center against Idaho at 6:30 p.m.
The Mavs struggled on its in-state trip to face Texas State and UT San Antonio. UTA lost 3-1 vs. Texas State on Thursday and dropped its Saturday afternoon match 3-0 to UTSA.
"Nothing seemed to go our way today," UTA head coach Diane Seymour said. "We were on our heels and never got into a rhythm which caused us to struggle."
After hosting Idaho on Thursday night, UTA takes on Seattle University at 2 p.m. Saturday. The home stand concludes with games against New Mexico State and Denver next week.
