West Virginia golf closed a historic season on Sunday after Day 3 at the NCAA Championship, as they missed the cut to advance to the next stage of competition but managed to finish their weekend with another program-record performance.

In just their second NCAA Championship ever, the Mountaineers posted a program-best finish in it's small history at the event. Their 28th-overall finish amongst the field of 30 is nine spots higher than the Mountaineers' finish in it's only other appearance during the 1947 NCAA Championship.

WVU was paced by Daniels, W.Va-native Todd Duncan -- the junior posted the best round of any Mountaineer over the opening 54 holes of play at the event, finishing the round at even par to post a three-round total of eight-over-par to finish tied for 60th overall at the end of the day.

Senior Jackson Davenport finished his career with a 13-over-par performance through 54 holes, while the Mountaineer lineup was rounded out by junior Max Green (+14), junior Pierce Grieve (+17), and sophomore Kaleb Wilson (+26).
