ANDREWS — McLennan Community College’s men’s golf team traveled to the Andrews Country Club to compete in the Andrews Collegiate/Amateur Invitational. At the end of the two day event Sunday, the Highlanders finished in sixth place with a 287-280—567.

Odessa was in second with 558, and Western Texas finished in third at 559. Wayland Baptist shot a 563, good enough for fourth place, and University of Permian Basin hit 575 for fifth place.
Mason Mikeska, a sophomore for MCC, lead the Highlanders with 73-67—140. He tied for ninth in the tournament.
