Men's golf finishes 9th at conference tourney
The Red Wolves men’s golf team came into the Sun Belt Conference Championship this week having finished in the top five at their last two tournament appearances: fourth at the Memphis Intercollegiate and first at the Red Wolf Intercollegiate.
These great finishes will seem a distant memory to the team as they finished ninth out of the 10 teams taking part in the conference championship in Biloxi, Miss.
Round one of the tournament was painful for the Red Wolves, who finished with 302 strokes overall for the day, placing them in a three way tie for sixth place with Western Kentucky and Arkansas-Little Rock.
Round two proved to not be much of an improvement for the Red Wolves, with a score of 299 that put them in a tie for eighth place with Louisiana-Monroe for the day and tied for ninth overall with Troy with a score of 601.
The hope for a spirited comeback on day three was unanswered, and the Red Wolves finished the final round with a score of 294 that placed them at eighth on the day, and ninth in the tournament with a final score of 895.
This score put the Red wolves within four strokes of sixth place, with sixth, seventh, eighth, and ninth place all being separated by one stroke.
Despite the poor overall performance, several Red Wolves players finished well on the individual level.
Senior Easton Key finished his career as a Red Wolf with a strong performance at the tournament, rising to second overall after round two and finishing at seventh overall after round three.
Key was the only A-State player to finish in the top half of the 50 person field.
Junior Sean Brock finished just shy of the top half, taking a tie for 26th overall, with sophomore Seth Garner being the third highest ranked Red Wolf at a 34th place tie.
It was Georgia State that took home the title, finishing with a combined score of 863 strokes, and placing two players in the top five finishers.
The Red Wolves have now ended the golf season, and hope to begin their next pursuit of the conference championship next spring.
