April 10, 2012
Texas Tech shaved four strokes off its second round score and was able to move up two spots to grab a fourth place finish at the 2012 Wyoming Cowboy Classic Talking Stick-North Golf Club in Scottsdale, Ariz.
The Red Raiders concluded the three-round, two day event with a team score of 7-under, 833. Kansas State won the tournament at 14-under, 826 while Colorado finished second at 12-under, 828. San Diego, which shared the lead with Kansas State after two rounds, finished third at 11-under, 829.
"Obviously, we didn't play like we are capable," said Texas Tech Head Coach Greg Sands. "I thought we had a great chance to go out and win a golf tournament and we just made to many sloppy mistakes that cost us. I am not happy with the way we played and neither are the guys so we have some work to do in order to get ready for the Big 12 Championships. I hope this will serve as a motivational tool so that we have the appropriate focus from this point forward."
Freshman Clement Sordet enjoyed his best outing in over a month as he secured an eighth place finish at 5-under, 205. Sordet shot a 66 in the first round and responded with back-to-back rounds of 69 to lead the Red Raiders.
Texas Tech has one final tune-up on the schedule before the Big 12 Championships as the Red Raiders head to College Station for the Aggie Invitational April 21-22 at the Traditions Club in College Station.
