MERIDIAN, Idaho - In Tuesday's final round of the Boise State University Dash Thomas Memorial, the Washington State men's golf team distanced itself from competing teams with a dominant effort and won the tournament outright. The men's team finished 9-under par for the tournament.

Sophomore Michael Anderson and senior Hank Frame also posted marks of 211, and all three players tied for fifth in the tournament.
Juniors Blake Snyder and Jarrett Foote led the Cougar men in the tournament's final round, each with scores under par Tuesday.Snyder, with the best mark of the day for WSU (-2, 69), finished just three strokes behind Lee, Anderson, and Frame with 214. He tied for 15th place. Foote was 1-under par for the day and finished tied for 37th.
"It is never easy to win," Washington State Head Coach Garrett Clegg said. "Our team did a great job, and we had solid performances from everyone this week. Our scores today ranged from 69-73, so everyone was right there. Our guys got off to a really fast start and from there continued to play really solid."
WSU came into the final round with a lead of just two strokes to Utah Valley. The Cougars were 2-under par as a team in the final round and their lead to runner-up Utah Valley was extended to six strokes.
