Stirn fired an opening-round 1-under par 70 and was 1-over 72 in the second round to finish at even-par 142 and tied for second.

Luka Naglic totaled 143 (+1) on the day to tie for fifth while Adam Thorp was 3-over with a total of 145. The highlight of the day came from Jack Madden as he aced the par-3, 185-yard fourth hole in the second round. Madden posted a 1-under par 70 in the round and totaled 146 (+4) to tie for 17th.

Rounding out the A-State golfers in the event were Michael Wepperning (T22nd – 147), Connor Wilson (47th – 157) and Devyn Pappas (52th – 163).

The Red Wolves competed against individuals from Arkansas, Baylor, North Texas, Odessa Junior College, SMU and Texas State.
