Hawks compete in Rockford:
Oregon played at the weather-shortened the Jefferson Invite, which was called due to rain after 13 holes, with all scores reverting back to nine-hole totals.

Each team had three teams of two compete, with awards given to the top five duos and overall team winner. Stockton took the title at +7, placing two of its three twosomes in the top five.

Oregon finished at +19 as a team, and was led by Carson Buck and Mitchell Nehrkorn, who earned a top-five finish at +1.
