WILMINGTON, N.C. – Four members of the Fairfield University men’s golf team had their best round of the weekend on Monday as the Stags concluded action at the Cape Fear National Intercollegiate. Eric Austin and Kellen Jordan each carded a 75 this afternoon – the best individual rounds of the weekend for Fairfield.

The Stags finished the tournament tied for 13th place with fellow MAAC squad Iona. Fairfield’s cumulative 958 landed the team three strokes behind 12th-place North Carolina Central and nine shots back of 11th-place Northern Kentucky in the 54-hole tournament.

Individually, Kevin Duncan rode a pair of 77s on Sunday to a final score of 234 (77-77-80) to place 40th on the leaderboard. Jordan finished with a 236 (80-81-75) after his +3 round today, while Austin’s three-over trip through the course landed him with a 238 (83-80-75). Alex Taylor also stayed in the 70s today to round out his score of 240 (84-80-76). Thomas Urciuoli (83-83-80) and Alex Ferrante (86-96-87) also competed this weekend of the Stags.

Jacksonville State won the tournament by eight strokes over Florida Gulf Coast with a collective 890 (305-295-290). The Gamecocks and Eagles were led by two golfers that shared the top of the individual leaderboard – Camilo Aguado from JSU and Casper Howells from FGCU – also with P.J. Acierno of La Salle. All three posted a 220 (+4) over 54 holes of action.

The Stags return to the links on March 25-26 at the Towson Spring Invitational at Prospect Bay Golf Course in Grasonville, Md.
