Allor has recorded four-consecutive top-25 finishes.

CLE ELUM, Wash. – Boise State senior men’s golfer Shane Allor led the Broncos at the Husky Invitational, concluding the tournament tied for 14th, Tuesday.

Allor carded a final-round, even-par 71 at the 6,887-yard Tumble Creek Club at the Suncadia Resort, finishing with a three-round total of 220 (72-77-71, +7). Dating back to last season, Allor has recorded four-consecutive top-25 finishes.

“Shane had a great week of practice last week and carried it right into the tournament,” head coach Dan Potter said. “He looked like the senior leader we need him to be.”

Boise State finished 12th amongst the 14 schools in the field, carding rounds of 296-304-300 (900, +48). Despite improving by four strokes from the second to the final round, the Broncos fell four places on a bunched leaderboard with a mere 12 strokes separating the sixth- and 13th-place teams.

“As a team, we are still getting better,” Potter added. “This result doesn’t reflect it, but we’re making progress.”

Washington and Oregon tied for the team title at 865 (+13), while the Huskies’ Corey Pereira captured medalist honors at 206 (-7).

Freshman Alex Francois finished tied for 34th at 225 (73-75-77, +12), senior Logan France finished tied for 47th (75-78-75—228, +15), sophomore Tristan Rohrbaugh finished tied for 53rd (79-74-77—230, +17) and junior Kyle Mitsunaga finished tied for 60th (76-78-79—233, +20).

The Broncos return to action during the fall portion of their season at the Utah OGIO Invitational at the Jeremy Ranch Country Club in Park City, Utah, Oct. 5-6.
