Scott, a rising sophomore who was selected to the 2021-22 second-team All-Sun Belt Conference team after five top-10 finishes during the season, finished the event 12 strokes under par. Despite shooting 4-under par in the final round, Scott placed in second place, one shot off the top spot (-13).
Scott finished his true freshman season with a 72.12 stroke average with a team-leading six rounds in the 60 along with four top-10 finishes and 10 top-25 performances in the Trojans’ 11 events.
Mobile native and rising senior McFadden kept the pace with Scott all season after having his individual scorecard counting in all 11 events. McFadden registered a career-best 72.45 stroke average in his junior season en route to a 2021-22 third-team All-Sun Belt Conference team selection.
McFadden registered three rounds under par in the event including a 7-under par (65) in the final round to put him T-7 in the final standings.
