RALEIGH, N.C. – Richmond fired a second-straight 7-over 291 to notch a five-stroke victory at the Wolfpack Spring Open on Sunday at Lonnie Poole Golf Course.
No. 23 NC State shot the day’s second-lowest score of 6-over 290 to finish fourth. Lamar was second followed by North Carolina in third.
Lamar’s MJ Daffue earned individual honors with a five-shot win, finishing the 36-hole event at 3-under 139 after rounds of 70 and 69, the latter being the low round of the day and tied for low round of the tournament.
NC State freshman Albin Choi shot an even-par 71 to finish tied for seventh at 4-over 146, his seventh top 10 of the year.
Sophomore Mitchell Sutton recorded his eighth top 20 of the season by tying for 13th at 6-over 148.
Senior Brandon Detweiler was low man of the day for the Wolfpack, recording a 1-under 70 to move up 32 spots on the leader board to finish tied for 19th at 8-over 150 for his fifth top 20 of the year.
Junior Mark McMillen tied for 27th at 10-over 152 after shooting a 3-over 74 on Sunday.
Junior Chad Day shot a 4-over 75 today. He wound up 68th after he was disqualified on Saturday for signing an incorrect score card.
Juniors Graham Baillargeon and Hunter Howell competed as individuals and tied for 36th at 12-over 154 and tied for 63rd at 23-over 165, respectively.
A day removed from treacherous winds that forced an average score well above 77, Sunday’s round was much more pleasant with blue skies and low-70’s temperatures by mid-afternoon.
NC State will compete next week at the ACC Championship at Old North State Country Club in New London, N.C. The 54-hole tournament will run Friday-Sunday.
