LAREDO, Tex. – National Amateur Squad member Blair Hamilton of Burlington, Ont. won his first collegiate event Saturday afternoon at the Border Olympics, posting a final-round 71 for a one-stroke victory at Laredo Country Club.

The University of Houston junior carded earlier rounds of 67 and 69 to finish just ahead of teammates Matt Scobie (Ajax, Ont.) and Roman Robledo en route to capturing medalist honours.

Even with three Cougars finishing atop the leaderboard, the University of Houston had to settle for a runner-up finish, three strokes behind champion Baylor.

Hamilton and the Cougars will tee-it-up again next week at the Valspar Invitational in Palm City, Fla.
