Wolves wrap up Bearcat Classic in seventh place
Sunday, March 23, 2014 | by Mansell earns top 10 finish

NINETY SIX - With conditions much cooler and overcast than Saturday's opening two rounds, the Newberry Wolves shot a team score of 301 to wrap up the Bearcat Golf Classic in seventh place at The Patriot Golf Club at Grand Harbor on Lake Greenwood.

Newberry's final three-round team score was 896 (+32) with round scores of 284-311-301. The 896 was Newberry's best three-round tournament score thus far this season, thanks in large part to the under-par first round Saturday.

Richard Mansell (Staffordshire, England) picked up his first career top 10 finish, shooting a 75 (+3) in the third round to finish in a tie for eighth place with a 3-over par 219 for the event.

Tommy Hurst (Miami, Fla.) and Ryan Wilkinson (Gallivants Ferry, S.C.) tied for 20th in the event at 8-over par 224, with Hurst shooting even par 72 on Sunday.

Dixon Walker (Lexington, S.C.) was 44th with a 14-over par 230 and John Paul Ferguson (Travelers Rest, S.C.) was 79th with a 26-over par 242.

Newberry was just four strokes out of the top five teams in a strong tournament field of the top teams in Division II's Southeast Region. Georgia College won the event with a 9-over par 873 and Clayton State's Fredrik Lindblom won medalist honors with a 5-under par 211.

Newberry wraps up its regular season on March 31 and April 1 at the UNC Pembroke Invitational at the River Landing Golf Course in River Landing, N.C.
