The two-day Southwestern Conference Tournament wrapped up yesterday afternoon at Belk Park Golf Course and it was the O'Fallon Panthers who came out the win.

O'Fallon fired a 311 on Tuesday for a two-day score of 632. Alton came in with a 313 (636 total) while Edwardsville shot 321 (637 total).

Edwardsville long reign over the tournament ended, mainly in part to the Tigers being without their top two golfers. After Mason Lewis shot a 74 back on the first round, Aug. 29 at Stonewall Golf Course, he withdrew from round two after eight holes due to a wrist injury. Carter Crow shot a 9-over par 81 in round one, but missed round two entirely while dealing with a knee injury, one that might keep him out the rest of the season.

While unfortunate for the Tigers, it opened up the field for anyone to come in.

The Redbirds sure did make a push thanks to Alex Siatos and Sam Ottwell.

Siatos shot the best score of anybody both rounds with an even-par 72 at Belk while Ottwell rang in a 74 for two-day totals of 146 and 150, respectively.
