MGCCC’s Colin McNamara (74-72—146) earned individual medalist honors with a 1-stroke edge over the Northeast tandem of Stephen Poole (74-73—147) and Daniel Singh (73-74—147).
The EMCC trio of Trey Adams (80-79), Garrett Alford (79-80) and Reed Aldridge (83-76) all tied for 31st place with identical 159 totals. Ian McAdams tied for 39th place (82-81—163), while sophomore Will Black claimed a 24th-place tie (80-75—155) participating as an individual.
