Malone posted a 1-under 70 in the final round of the Oakwood Intercollegiate, helping the team jump 6 spots in the final standings to finish 8th, behind a slew of the top junior college programs in the country and one other NAIA school. KWU shot the third lowest round score of the third round, led by Malone’s strong effort to help KWU vault its way up the standings.
