Berry Finishes 13th at Chick-Fil-A Collegiate; Garcia Ties for 20th
Lee Wins Chick-Fil-A Collegiate; Berry's Garcia Finishes 20th
Berry's Jose Garcia tied for 20th place and the Vikings finished 13th in the team standings in the Chick-Fil-A Collegiate Invitational at Coosa Country Club Tuesday.
Berry finished the event with a 314-307-621 team score, just one stroke behind 12th place Piedmont and only seven strokes out of the top 10. Lee won the event, shooting 286-286-572.
The Vikings would have benefited from Garcia's score, but since he was playing as an individual, his scorecard could not be applied to Berry's tally. Garcia followed Monday's first-round 76 by shaving three strokes off that total Tuesday, giving him a 36-hole score of 149. It was the best overall score by any player on the Berry roster.
The Vikings' Alex Elmore fired a 72 Tuesday, giving him a two-round total of 152 after shooting 80 Monday and tying him with teammate Ryan Gambrell, who shot 73-79-152. Elmore and Gambrell tied for 38th place.
Other than Garcia, three other Berry players competed individually, including John Hall, who tied for 65th after shooting 80-78-158. Jared Hall finished 107th at 87-83-170 and Blake Hall finished 115th at 91-90-181.
Lee's Matt Emery won the individual medal after he followed Monday's round 70 with a 66 Tuesday, giving him a 36-hole score of 136 and a four-shot win over second place Zach Lindsey of Reinhardt (69-71-140).
Emery and Lindsey were joined on the All-Tournament team by Josh Dyer of Union (Ky.) (69-72-141), Thomas Scott of Union (Ky.) (72-71-143) and William Potts of Trevecca Nazarene (71-72-143).
Lee coasted to the team championship, winning by a whopping 21 strokes. Union (Ky.) finished second at 295-298-593, followed by Trevecca Nazarene (292-302-594), Spring Hill (298-297-595) and Southwestern (292-304-596).
