Antonio Cruz-Conde also registered a top-50 finish, tying for 45th (+4), while David Langley (+6) and Calvin Greschner (+8) rounded out ODU’s team score. Newcomer Michael Bakker (+9) was the fifth Monarch competing.

Virginia Tech (-28) won the 14-team tournament, finishing 10 strokes ahead of second-place James Madison (-18). The Hokies’ Joey Lane (-10) won the individual title in a sudden-death playoff. Old Dominion (+16) placed ahead of Radford (+20), host VCU (+21) and George Washington (+26).

The Monarchs climbed one spot on the team leaderboard after finishing a weather-shortened opening day in 12th on Monday. The teams were originally slated to play 36 holes in the opening round, but a five-hour rain delay cut Monday’s round to 18 holes.

ODU is back in action Sept. 25-26 at the Patriot Intercollegiate in Lorton, Va.
