Junior Arthur Kim led the way for the Tigers at Monday's tourney with a three-over-par score of 75, putting him second in the tourney individual standings.

Tigard also got a big performance from junior Ryan Knolin, who turned in a personal-best score of 77, placing him fifth individually.

Also for the Tigers, freshman Mark Jenson carded an 82, senior Brad Prince had a round of 84 and senior Daniel Migas shot an 86.
