MEMPHIS, Tenn. — The Berry College men's golf team shot a NCAA DIII era program record 19 under at the Rhodes College Spring Classic, claiming the top spot in a strong field. Berry's Wesley Heston took first individually, shooting 10 under.
Heston (72-68-66 – 206) was followed closely by Preston DeSantis who finished second with eight under (67-71-70 – 208). Henry Jones tied at fifth with a five under three-round score (73-69-69 – 211). Peter Trask rounded out the Vikings in the top-15, going even 74-70-72 – 216.
"To finish the regular season with a win posting scored like we did, I definitely think that gives us some momentum heading into the postseason," Head Coach Brian Farrer said. "The guys worked hard and believed in themselves to hit some quality shots. They all played really smart and were able to find the extra gear when opportunities arose to make some birdies down the stretch."
The Vikings finished ahead of Southern Athletic Association (SAA) rivals No. 29 Sewanee, No. 17 Rhodes, Birmingham-Southern, Millsaps and Hendrix. Berry is ranked No. 22 in the Golfstat rankings and will open the SAA tournament in Dickson, Tenn., on April 26-28.
