PARIS, TENN. – The John A. Logan College men’s golf team tied the Murray State “A” team for first place Tuesday with a three-round total of 861 at the University of Tennsee-Martin Skyhawk Invitational at the Paris Landing Golf Course in Paris, Tenn.
The Racers then broke the tie with a one-hole playoff.
Sophomores Tucker Guisewite of Mount Carmel and Steve Souchek of Waterloo led the Vols’ attack with scores of 211 (71, 71, 69) and 212 (69, 70, 73). Guisewite tied for second in the individual scoring. Souchek tied for fifth.
Freshman Brock Bolton of Salem also turned in a strong showing with a 217 (71, 74, 72), good for 18th place. Rounding out the scoring were freshmen Thomas Simpson of Benton and Michael Mencaccy of Rocklin, Calif. with a 227. They tied for 52nd place.
As a team, the Vols finished ahead of 10 other teams, including David Lipscomb (863); Union (868); SIUC (872); Tennessee-Martin “B” (872); Tennessee-Martin “A” (876); Tennessee State (881); Murray State “B” (890); Southern Indiana (897); Jackson State (912); and Bethel (921).
“I thought we played extremely well, especially the first two rounds when we shot in the 280s,” said Vols head coach Tom Ferris. “In my opinion, we began to play to our potential. This group has made some rapid strides since the beginning of the fall. Obviously, we still have some work to do, but I like what I have seen of late.”
The Vols wrap up the abbreviated fall season this weekend at Lockhaven Country Club in Alton at the Lewis and Clark Invitational.
“I would like to see us finish the fall on a positive note,” Ferris said.
