Philipp Fendt and Andrew Noto finished play at the UTSA Oak Hills Invitational on Tuesday, tying for third place overall as the Ragin' Cajuns golf team tied for fifth place in San Antonio, Texas on Tuesday.

The Cajuns finished with a score of 877, tying for fifth with No. 50 Baylor.

"We have high expectations and high goals," said UL head coach Theo Sliman. "We need a collective effort as we move forward. We'll need all five players on the same page."

Fendt and Noto had drastically different days. Fendt started the day where he finished after shooting 74 (+3) to finish at 210 (-3). Noto started the day in a tie for 15th place but fired off a 68 (-3) to finish alongside Fendt.

"I'm happy for both these guys," said Sliman. "They both played with focus and hats off to them. I know it stings because a few slip-ups in their rounds were the difference between first and third. But they put forth a tremendous effort to start the spring season."

Nils Floren of No. 20 Texas Tech earned medalist honors finishing two shots ahead of the Cajuns' duo (-5, 208).

The Red Raiders also claimed the team title with a score of 837. Rounding out the top four were No. 49 Oklahoma (849), No. 28 North Texas (850) and No. 40 Tulsa (855).

Also scoring for UL were Garrett Westbrook (226), Chris Weninger (237) and Ethan Savoy (237).

The Cajuns will now turn their attention to the Mobile Bay Intercollegiate which will be held on Feb. 21-22 at the Magnolia Grove Crossings Golf Club in Mobile, Ala.
