MONROE, N.C. - The Newberry College men's golf team combined for a 2-over par 290 in Monday's final round of the Ralph Hargett Memorial Intercollegiate and tied for seventh place in the tournament behind a career-best event from Carlos Leandro.

Newberry's 54-hole total of 871 (+7, 285-296-290) is the second-best team tournament score this season and tied the Wolves with Newberry for seventh place in the event. Lenoir-Rhyne won the event with a 13-under par 851, one stroke ahead of Young Harris.

Leandro finished in sixth place in the tournament with a 5-under par 211 (70-73-68), wrapping up the tournament with his career-best 4-under par round Monday. The Spaniard was 8-under par on the Monroe CC's par 5 holes in the 54-hole event.

Scoring conditions throughout the tournament were excellent, as Fredrik Fossum and Nick Lussier tied for 33rd in the event at 220. That score of 4-over par is a new career low for Lussier and was one stroke back of a career low for Fossum.

Evan DeGrazia tied for 48th in the event with a 224 (+8) and Spencer Skiff shot an even par round Monday to rebound and tie for 54th with a 54-hole total of 225 (+9).

The Wolves have two more events in the regular season before the South Atlantic Conference Tournament. Newberry's next action is in the nearby Lander Bearcat Golf Classic at the Greenwood CC on March 28-29.
