He competed in seven of Carolina's 11 tournaments this year and carded two top-30 finishes. His top performance was a tie for 13th at the Tar Heel Intercollegiate, where he competed as an individual. Sajevic, a transfer from UNC Charlotte prior to his junior year, also tied for 28th at the ACC Championships. Sajevic carded a 75.62 stroke average as he fired two under-par rounds, one in the 60s, and one even par round.
