Casey Fowles led the Utes and finished in first overall with his 208 (70-70-68), eight-under-par performance. The win was the team's first since 1988, and Fowles individual victory was the first time a Ute has finished first since 1998.
This Tournament will be the Utes first since Oct. of 2002. Utah completed one of the most sucessful fall season's in school history capped with a victory in Northridge, Calif. at the Countrywide Intercollegiate.
QUOTING HEAD COACH WAYNE FISHER:
"The John Burns is always a tournament we look forward to, it's the first tournament of the spring season and we aren't quite sure what to expect. It is a very strong field and we hope to pick up right where we left off in the fall."
