Freshman Justin Largent will be competing as an individual and will be in his first collegiate event.

Nicholson currently leads the Tigers in average, with a 74.7 after one tournament. Goben is second on the list with a 76.2 average after playing in all four events. He is also one of three players that participated in the same event a year ago, finishing tied for 46th with a 153.

Arnold has played in two events this season and has a 77.8 average. He also participated in the event last year, finishing with a 151 (T41st). Williams has played in three events so far this season, with a 78.1 average.
