SWOSU Disc Dawgs Finish in Top 10 at Nationals


The SWOSU Disc Dawgs finished in 8th place at the recent National Collegiate Disc Golf Championship held in North Augusta, S.C.

SWOSU students playing in the four-day invitation only tournament at the Hippodrome Disc Golf Complex were: Austin Hannum, Perry; Austin Carter, Oklahoma City (PC North); Matt Mauldin, Beggs; and Mason Snider, Duncan.  Hannum and Carter finished in the top 30 for individual performance, and Hannum was also named a Second Team All-American.

The nation’s top 50 teams participated in the tourney. SWOSU entered the tourney ranked #41 but because of the strong performance at the national tourney, SWOSU ended up ranked #10 in the Innova Collegiate Rankings. 

Disc Dawgs co-founder Casey Jiles said the SWOSU team is a young program that is fielded by students that haven’t been playing the game very long. He said SWOSU has the only competitive collegiate disc golf team in the state.

The SWOSU Disc Dawgs qualified for the national tournament with a second place finish at the Mid-South Collegiate Open.
