Behind Blackburn, Jacob Hall shot a 48 for Houston. He was followed by Kerry Roberts (56), Tyler DeWitt (54) and Corie Gustafson (58).

Devin Willson shot a 59 for the JV Tigers.

On Tuesday, Blackburn fired a 6-over 41 to pace the Tigers’ third-place finish at Willow Springs.

Roberts shot a 47, followed by Caleb Clem (49), DeWitt (51) and Josh Hall (56).

Gustafson and Willson shot a 57 and 70, respectively, for the JV.
