Ada —

The East Central University men’s golf team will be competing in its final tournament of the 2013 Fall season, Oct. 28-29 at The Tribute in The Colony, Texas. Texas A&M Commerce is hosting the Fall Review.

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.

The final member that will count for the team score is Bates, who has a season average of 81.3 after one tournament. Bates was the final member of the group to play on the course last year, finishing tied for 57th with a 157.
