Dixie State posted its fourth-straight top-three finish as the Trailblazers took home runner-up honors at the 2018 Notre Dame de Namur Argonaut Invitational on a cool and rainy Tuesday at the par-72 Poppy Ridge Golf Course.

The Trailblazers (296-290-303-889, +25) owned a one-stroke lead on both Cal State San Bernardino and Simon Fraser heading into Tuesday's final round. However DSU could not hold off the hard-charging Coyotes (309-278-296-883, +19), who vaulted up seven spots on the team leaderboard over the final two rounds to win the event by six strokes. No. 31 SFU (299-288-304-891, +27) finished third overall, followed by Dominican (287-306-313-906, +42) and No. 42 Western Washington (295-308-303-906, +42) in t-fourth.

DSU placed four golfers in the top-15 on the player leaderboard, led by junior Nicklaus Britt (Fillmore, Utah/Millard HS) (70-74-72), who carded the tourney's low round of the day with an even-par 72, which included an eagle and one birdie, to finish tied for third at 216 (E). Senior Dalton Stanger (Orem, Utah/Orem HS) (71-71-79) also posted a top-five finish as he finished tied for fifth with two others at plus-5 221.

Sophomore Jayce Frampton (Centerville, Utah/Viewmont HS) (76-72-78) and freshman Landon Anderson (Kaysville, Utah/Davis HS) (79-73-74) tied for 14th-overall at plus-10 226, and freshman Spencer Wallace (Layton, Utah/Layton HS) (79-77-85) placed t-39th at plus-25 241.

Dixie State will take a week off from competition before heading down to San Diego to defend its team title at the 2018 UC San Diego SoCal Intercollegiate March 26-27.
