Colonels take sixth at OVC
The Colonels did not get a chance to move to the top in the OVC Tourney as old Mother Nature decided to rain out the final round after 36 holes.
EKU turned in a three round, 291, on Friday four shots better than Thursday’s 295. They finished two shots behind Murray State, 584, and one shot ahead of seventh-place Morehead State, 587.
Austin Peay won the title by nine shots over Jacksonville State, 577.
Stuart Witt fired EKU’s best score of the tournament on Friday, a three-under, 69. His two-round total of 143 tied for 10th overall. Zack Butler had 147, Taylor Riggs, 148, Garrett Hinton, 148 and Johan Eriksson, 152.
This concludes the Colonels’ spring golf action. They will tee it up again in September.
Special thanks to Kevin Britton, assistant director of public relations at EKU for all the good info he has given me on the golf teams.
