Oregon State leads with 7 under par. Mountain West Newcomer of the Year Bastian Amat and his newcomer teammate Matthew Watkins achieved identical results of 2 under 70 and are 9th in the individual ranking. They fired the low rounds for the Lobos. “They all had a point where it was difficult. Maybe they had a bad hole and they responded very well and took advantage of some of the scoring holes, “said UNM head coach Glen Millican. “If we continue like this, we will continue to hold ourselves in a good position.”
Bastien Amat agrees with his coach. “I just know we can do that every day,” said Amat. “It’s just comforting to know that and to play like an average today. We’re still in the top five as we set out to do. “

The state of New Mexico ranks 13th as a team. Former outstanding St. Pius player Aidan Thomas plays number two for the Aggies and got his first taste of the NCAA’s regional action on Monday. Thomas looked forward to returning home in front of friends and family. He just wishes he played better. “Just a little baffled that I finished the last nine holes badly,” said Thomas. “I played the first nine pretty well, they definitely supported me along the way. My short game could be a little better. My putting was fine. I only missed a few short putts, but that was because the wind really does have an impact on the greens. “
