Conover, N.C. - The University of Charleston Men's Golf Team shot a 622 (+46) to capture the first annual AccuSport Intercollegiate Tuesday at the Rock Barn Golf and Spa in Conover, N.C.  Newberry placed 13th as a team, 26 strokes off Charleston, after finishing day one in 11th place.

Newberry's Hunter Mengel (Snellville, Ga.) paced the Indians with a 15-over good for a share of 25th place.  Teammate Martin Gasque (Holly Hill, S.C.) finished one stroke behind Mengel and tied for 31st place.
