The Kansas State men’s golf team wrapped up at the Big 12 Match Play Championship on Tuesday with losses versus Kansas in pool play and Baylor in the championship round at the Houston Oaks Golf Club in Hockley, Tex.

The Wildcats placed 10th out of the 10 competing teams and went winless overall.

“I’m proud of our guys for how hard they played (Tuesday),” K-State head coach Grant Robbins said in a release. “It wasn’t the result we wanted, but we have to take the positives and learn from it and get better.”

K-State narrowly fell to the Jayhawks in Tuesday’s morning session (2-1-3) before losing 4-2-0 to the Bears.

Cooper Schultz, had K-State’s lone victory over KU and Will Hopkins and Nicklaus Mason posted wins over Baylor.
