WEST BOYLSTON, Mass. -- Drury High graduate Nick Bator shot a final round four over par 76 to lead the MCLA Trailblazers at the MASCAC Championships held at Wachusett Country Club.
Bator's two day total of 160 was good for a tie for 12th place.
Springfield College took home the team championship while the Pride's Mike Strong won the individual title via a three way playoff. Strong shot a 152 over the 36 hole event.
MCLA finished in eighth place.
Bator rebounded from a tough opening day to post a respectable finish. Even though the final round was played in blustery and cool conditions, Bator put together a solid round. He birdied a pair of par fives on the afternoon, the second and fifteenth holes, on his way to the 76.
MCLA's Brett Norman and Reese Dwyer finished T-35 during the tournament. Norman shot a second round 87, an improvement over his opening day score. Noah Matrigali was the other Trailblazer to round out the scoring.
The event is the final one of the fall season for MCLA.
