Marian University sophomore Max Dye led the Sabres mens golf team Saturday at the Culver’s Edgewood Fall Classic tournament in Janesville, Wisconsin, with a 36th place finish.
The 2017 Kenai Central graduate, who made a name in prep sports as a tough defender on the KCHS boy soccer team, carded a seven-over 78 on the par-71 course that stretches 6,849 yards, good enough to tie for 36th out of 114 competitors. The two-day tournament became a one-day, 18-hole event after rains washed out Sunday’s action.
Dye finished eight shots back of the winner, but tops among his Marian (Wisconsin) teammates, helping the Sabres to a 12th-place team finish out of 20 schools.
One of just two Alaskans currently playing collegiate golf, Dye has secured nine career top 40 finishes in 11 tournaments.
