The St. Andrews’ junior, out of Mountaintop, Pa, won the AAC title with a 3-under-par 213 to finish as the individual champion is representing the AAC at the NAIA National Championship. If Hurn makes the cut by placing in the top 40 after three rounds he will advance to the fourth and final round on Friday.
