The Flames were not able to make a move on the final day of competition as Liberty remained in the same position as they were at the conclusion of the first day, finishing its season-opening tournament in 11th place out of 14 teams at the Raines Development Group Intercollegiate, hosted by Francis Marion at the Country Club of South Carolina.

South Carolina-Aiken fired a final-round three-over-par 291 to finish with a 54-hole event record as the team tallied a 15-under-par 849 (282-276-291) to claim in the team championship, finishing nine shots ahead of Francis Marion's six-under-par 858 (288-281-289).

The Flames finished the first event on their 2005-06 schedule in 11th place by carding a 27-over-par 891 (290-301-300).

Western Carolina's Matt Cook (71-68-70) and Jacksonville's Jamie Kennedy (73-67-69) finished the event tied with a seven-under-par 209, with Cook claiming individual medalists honors in a playoff.

The Flames had a trio of players finish in a tie for 32nd place as Andrew Turner (72-74-75), Parker McKoy (71-75-75) and Jay Calvo (70-77-74) all carded a five-over-par 221 to pace the team, while Sam Nelson was tied for 60th with a 14-over-par 230 (77-75-78) and Peter Horstman was tied for 65th place with an 18-over-par 234 (80-78-76).

The Flames return to tournament action on October 10-11 when they travel to Harrisonburg, Va., to compete in the James Madison Invitational, a two-day, 54-hole event played at the Lakeview Golf Course.
