Illinois State University senior David Perkins once again led the Redbirds, carding his ninth sub-par score of the season. His third-place individual finish helped the Redbirds secure a tie for seventh place at the 2019 Bearcat Invitational. 

Perkins has been under par in each round he has played this season. At the Bearcat Invitational, he carded an eleven-under par, a three-round total of 202 (67,68,67). Louisville’s Ryan Murphy finished as the individual medalist just six strokes ahead of Perkins at 196 (67,66,63).
