SAN ANTONIO, Texas – Freshman Grayson Blunt paced the Sam Houston State men’s golf team as the Bearkats sit in fourth-place after a rain-soaked afternoon on day one of the Lone Star Invitational.

Tournament host UTSA led the field with a card total of 289, followed by Arkansas State (291) in second, third-ranking Little Rock (295), the Bearkats (296) and Texas State (297) in fifth.

The field was able to get a few holes in but a steady rain suspended round one of the invitational just before noon. The action picked up at 2 p.m. where the teams played 18 of the scheduled 36 holes.

In his collegiate debut, Blunt sits in a tie for fifth after shooting a team-low 72 through 18 holes. He picked up his first collegiate eagle on hole 2 and registered a team-high four birdies.  

Veterans Camden DeBonis and William Holcomb followed Blunt in the top 20 and are tied for 10th and 16th, respectively. DeBonis tallied a 73 on the scorecard while Holcomb shot 74. The pair shot three birdies apiece.

The Kats racked up a combined 13 birdies on the opening day of the 2018-19 season.

The Bearkats wrap up action at the Lone Star Invitational tomorrow at 8 a.m. Due to the inclement weather, the field will play a total of 36 holes for the tournament. For all the latest information on the Sam Houston State soccer team, visit gobearkats.com.
