Local, area sports briefs

The Big 12 Conference is tied for the national lead with seven teams making it to the 2018 NCAA Men's Golf Tournament.

Via a final-round 65, North Florida's Travis Trace claimed regional medalist honors with an 11-under 205 total that clipped BYU's Patrick Fishburn by a stroke, Cummins by three strokes and Hale by four.

The Mids shot their best round of the tournament on the final day of competition.

"This week sort of feels like PGA Tour school", Baylor coach Mike McGraw said. The regular season is the regular season, and when you come to these things, you've got to be ready to go, and our last two rounds were not good enough to advance.

Coastal led the 14-team field with 178 pars over three days - four better than next closest teams Vanderbilt and South Florida.

UCLA finished in fourth place and will advance.

The Cyclones had a final team store of -17 and finished the third day with a team score of 3-under-par 285. Twelve teams in the region shot under-par rounds Wednesday, and the Flames ranked 12th among those teams.

Individually, the Bears placed two under par for the tournament. Kansas (563), ranked No. 43 in the nation, is in third and just one stroke back of the co-leaders, while No. 18 Stanford (568) and No. 31 TCU (569) round out the top five.

Prior to Wednesday, KU's best finish at a NCAA Regional was a tie for third in 1996.

Playing at the Grandover Resort, Isaacson shot a 69 to finish the first round three-under-par. For the tournament, the team shot a combined 21-under-par to finish in fourth place. Bailey shot a 73 and a pair of 72s.

Dossey tied for 10 in par-3 scoring at even-par 3.00, and his 13 birdies tied for eighth most. We held our composure pretty well this week, shot even yesterday and 1-under today, which was nothing special, but not anything bad.

Between them, Cummins, Hale and Reband carded just one over-par round of the collective nine they played beginning Monday and not one of their rounds had to be kicked out of the Sooners' total.

The regional was one of six being conducted to determine the field for the NCAA Championship finals, which will be contested May 25-30 at Karsten Creek in Stillwater.
