BREMERTON, Wash. (Nevada Athletics) -
The Nevada men’s golf team rallied from 17 shots down and played a final round of twelve-under to tie Washington and win the Husky Invitational by tiebreaker. The Pack was sitting in 6th place after the second round, a long 36-hole day one of the tournament, leading to a gritty finish to the final day of play. Nevada used a 12-under third round to rally past four teams and pull into a tie with first-place Washington (-18). The tiebreaker favored the Wolf Pack and Nevada celebrates its first tournament win of the season and first win since taking the Olympic Club Intercollegiate on Mar. 11-12, 2019.
Quim Vidal Mora and Peyton Callens paced the Pack with six-under scores for the tournament. Vidal Mora was outstanding during the third round today as he posted a three-under score including an eagle on 18 alongside four birdies for the round. Callens was a standout as well as he recorded a two-under final round with four birdies to finish with a round of 70.
A.J. Lintunen and Trey Davis shared three-under rounds during the closing 18 holes.

Michael Sarro finished tied for 61 with a nine-over for the tournament. The tiebreaker came down to the 5th-man score (Sarro) which was a tie and then the 4th-man score which Nevada won (-6; Callens). “I’ve been with Nevada men’s golf for over a decade now, what these men did out there today was magical. This is something they should be very proud of.” - Head Coach Jacob Wilner. The Pack is back in action on Oct. 11-12 when the Wolf Pack Classic tees off at Hidden Valley Country Club.
