Liberty Finishes In Fourth Place
The Liberty men's golf team couldn't overcome strong closing rounds by St. John's and Francis Marion, as the Flames finished fourth out of 15 squads at East Carolina's Ironwood Pirate Intercollegiate, played on a cool and cloudy day at the 7,102-yard, par-72 Ironwood Country Club, in Greenville, N.C., on Sunday.
St. John's (572) entered the final round eight strokes behind Newberry (582), the leader entering the day. St. John's tallied a tournament-low 278 on Sunday to claim the tournament championship by 10 strokes over second-place Newberry. Liberty (584) finished fourth, one stroke behind Francis Marion (583).
The Flames were led by Nathan Schenz-Davis (143) and Jay Calvo (143), who each finished one-over, tying for seventh. Parker McKoy (148) finished six-over, while Andrew Nelson (150) finished eight-over. David Jeh (151) rounds out the Flames' squad at nine-over. Liberty also inserted two individuals in the tournament. Freshman Preston Dembowiak (143) tied teammates Calvo and Schenz-Davis at one-over par, while fellow rookie Chris Watters (149) finished at seven-over.
Keegan Bradley (138) of St. John's and Ben Lowan (138) of Newberry tied for medalist honors, as there was no playoff. Christopher Couch (141) of Francis Marion finished one-under, placing third. J.J. Amoruso (142) of George Mason, Alex Snickenberger (142) of Boston College and Markus Leandersson (142) of East Carolina all shared fourth place at even-par.
Liberty is back in action on Friday at N.C. State's Wolfpack Invitational in Wallace, N.C.
