Barton stood in fourth place after the first 18 holes, but moved up to third in the final 18 to score a 623.
Freshman Koby Beougher led the Cougars with an 11-over 155 to finish in 14th place.
Fellow freshman Landon Fox, a Winfield native, finished a stroke behind in 16th place, while sophomores Alex Hobelmann (157) and Jeremie Eloy (158) were close behind, finishing in 19th and 22nd places, respectively.
Freshman Zack Proffitt rounded out the Cougars, finishing 32nd at 165.
Sophomore Bryer Livermore competed as an individual, finishing in 53rd place at 194.
Barton will be back on the links for its second conference meet on Monday, Sept. 23, which will be held at Turkey Creek Golf Course in McPherson.
