Dalton State Holds On For 2nd In Georgetown Invitational

Wednesday, February 21, 2018
Dalton State rallied on Tuesday, but came up just short, posting a (+8, 296) final round to finish in second place in the Georgetown College Invitational at Slammer & Squire Course in St. Augustine, Fla. The Roadrunners would finish with a two-day team total of (+9, 585). Coastal Georgia would take the team title with a (+3, 579).

#16 Southeastern (Fla.), (+9, 585), came home in a second place tie with the Roadrunners, followed by Webber International, (+23, 599), in fourth. #22 William Carey (Miss.
), (+26, 602), rounded out the top 5.

Senior All-American P.J. Shields was the leading Roadrunner in the clubhouse, firing a (+2, 74) to finish tied for second with Rasmus Lind of Lindsey Wilson (Ky.). Dalton Johnson likewise posted (74) to jump into the Top-10 in ninth.

All-American S.M. Lee and Sport Allmond finished in a tie for 13th with three other golfers after rounds of (73) and (76) respectively. Ben Rebne finished in 21st after mirroring his round from Monday with (75). Senior Chase Cole finished up with a round of (76) playing as an individual.

"As disappointing as it was not winning, it is still early in the Spring," said Dalton State Coach Ben Rickett. "Coastal gave us a shot and we didn't take it. Yesterday hurt us as we can't give that quality of a team a 10 shot head start. That being said, I saw some good things this week that we can build on as we head into a busy March."

The #2-ranked Roadrunners will get two weeks off before beginning a busy March in Bluffton, S.C. at the Sand Shark Classic on March 5 & 6.
