Liberty's Isaiah Logue finished in 11th place at the Ka'anapali Collegiate Classic to close out the fall portion of Liberty's 2015-16 golf schedule.

No. 32 Liberty wrapped up its fall season of competition on Sunday by finishing in 13th place at the 2015 Ka'anapali Collegiate Classic.

The Flames closed the three-day, 54-hole event with a 16-over par 300, concluding the tournament with a 31-over par 883 score (285-298-300).

No. 13 Oklahoma continued to be the only team in the 19-team field to find the Ka'anapali Golf Course (par 71, 6,700 yards) to its liking.

The Sooners carded the lone under-par team score during the final round, posting a 4-under par 280 to claim the team title by a comfortable margin.

They posted a 15-under par 837 winning scoring (276-281-280), finishing 12 strokes ahead of No. 12 Georgia's 3-under par 849 (285-278-286). No. 35 N.C. State finished in a distant third place with a 10-over par 862 (279-286-297), followed by Cal State Northridge, who took home fourth place with an 11-over par 863 (285-290-288).

Rounding out the top 50 ranked teams in the field were No. 22 South Carolina, who finished in fifth place with a 12-over par 864 (284-292-288), and No. 37 Kansas, who took home sixth place with a 15-over par 867 (293-289-285).

Ten players in the 102-man field posted tournament scores in red figures. A stretch of three-straight birdies on his front nine allowed Georgia's Zach Healy to fend off No. 73 Brad Dalke of Oklahoma for medalist honors.

Healy carded an even par 71 on Sunday and finished one stroke ahead of Dalke with an 8-under par 205 (68-66-71) winning score. Dalke fell one stroke short, taking second place with a 7-under par 206 (66-72-68).

Liberty's Isaiah Logue paced the Flames' play during the program's first-ever trip to Hawaii. The sophomore finished in a share of 11th place with an even par 213 (72-70-71).

A double bogey on the par 4, No. 10 hole, his seventh of the shotgun start round, positioned Logue at 3-over par for the day. However, he rebounded with birdies on three of his next four holes to get back to level par for the day and the overall event.

Michael DeMorat looked like he was going to post his second sub-par round of the event. He birdied the par-4, No. 18 hole, his 14th hole of the round, to get to 2-under par. But a double bogey on the par-5, No. 1 hole and a bogey on his last, the par-4, No. 4, dropped him back to a share of 15th place with an overall 1-over par 214 (70-72-72).

The Flames final three golfers in the field were Payton Taylor, who finished tied for 75th place with a 17-over par 230 (71-79-80), Gabe Lench, who finished tied for 79th place with an 18-over par 231 (72-77-82) and Adam Eineving, who shared 82nd place with a 19-over par 232 (76-79-77).

The three-day event concludes the fall portion of Liberty's schedule. The Flames will return to action on Feb. 1-2 when they travel to Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla., to participate in the Sea Best Invitational at the TPC Sawgrass – Dye Course.
