Methodist’s Mike Wesko defeated Eric Quinn of Oglethorpe in a three-hole playoff to win the medalist honors.

Sunday’s round was played on the much tougher Gold Course and freshman Florian Loutre stepped up to fire a 2-over 74 and finished the 54-holes with 218. Overall, Matt Emery was best for the Flames. He carded a 76 on Sunday and totaled 216.

Hunter Vest came in with a 75 on the final day and his three-day total stands at 220 as did Taylor Davis who posted a 76. JB Eksteen also had a 76 and his final tally was 221.

“Chad Wilson (Lee graduate assistant) did a good job with the guys this week,” said head coach John Maupin. “A Top 5 finish in a very strong field was solid by our guys. We still have plenty of things to work on, but we beat some good teams this week and are headed in the right direction.”

The Flames will return to action on April 8 when they enter the annual NAIA Classic at the Brickyard Crossing.
