SAMMAMISH, Wa.– The incredible run that was the UTEP men’s golf team’s season came to an end at the 2017 NCAA Washington Regional in Sammamish, Washington on Wednesday.

The Miners shot 32-over 884 (297-294-293) at the Aldarra Golf Club to finish in ninth place, four spots out of the desired fifth place and the opportunity to punch their ticket to the national championships. Top-seeded Southern California, also the no. 1 team in the nation, remained under par to finish first in the regional with 3-under 849 (280-283-286).

Kent State, Florida State, Alabama and Penn State will join Southern California at the NCAA National Championships in Rich Harvest Farms in Sugar Grove, Ill. on May 26-31.

Four Miners finished in the top-50 of the field. Charles Corner, who spearheaded the Orange and Blue’s run all tournament, finished in a tie for 22nd with 5-over 218 (70-74-74). Corner collected four birdies in the final round on holes no. 9, no. 10, no. 12, and no. 17 and tied for seventh overall in par-4 scoring (4.11, +3). The junior also shot the team’s lone eagle during round two.

Senior Frederik Dreier made his last appearance as a Miner, shooting 7-over 220 (76-68-76) to finish in a tie for 27th. The two-time C-USA Golfer of the Year led his squad in par-5 scoring (4.75, -3), pars (34) and held the lowest round of any UTEP participant in his second round score of 68. One stroke behind Dreier, Aaron Terrazas finished with a share of 29th after firing 8-over 221 (73-77-71).

The sophomore carded four birdies and tied for fifth overall in par-3 scoring (3.07, +1). Terrazas also tied with Corner for a team-leading eight birdies while collecting 30 total pars.

Andreas Sorensen shot his best round of the tournament to total his 14-over 227 (79-75-73) score, breaking into the top-50 with a tie for 47th place finish. Sorensen collected his tournament-high three birdies in the third round while matching Dreier’s 34 pars to contribute to the teams’ 162 total pars.

Nicklas Pihl shot his lowest score of the three rounds on Wednesday and completed the Miners’ run with a share of 62nd after shooting 18-over 231 (78-78-75). The junior had six total birdies in the tournament.

The Miners, who made their first NCAA Regional appearance as a team since 2004, ended their season with four tournament titles, including the Conference USA Championship. The C-USA title was the first since 1985 and the second conference title ever in program history.
