Johnson City, Tenn. -- The East Tennessee State Buccaneer men's golf team shot a final-round 306 to finish in 11th place in the Ping/Golfweek Preview Invitational that concluded Sunday afternoon from the Ohio State University Scarlet Course in Columbus, Ohio. The Bucs finished at 39-over par (292-293-306=891), 29 shots behind team champion, Clemson. The Tigers led wire-to-wire in the tournament, but had to birdie the final hole to avert a late charge by Wake Forest. Freshman Cennydd Mills continued the impressive start to his ETSU career, shooting a 2-over par 73 in the final round to finish in a tie for 19th at 6-over par (72-74-73=219). Junior Adam Riddering finished the tournament in a tie for 37th at 10-over par (73-70-80=223) after shooting a final round 9-over par 80. Fellow junior James Johnson finished one stroke behind Riddering in a tie for 43rd at 11-over par (72-74-78=224). Freshman Noel Kavanaugh shot an 8-over par 79 to finish the tournament in a tie for 64th at 17-over par (76-75-79=230). One of the players that Kavanaugh tied with was ETSU freshman Marco Trejos, who also tied for 64th (75-79-76=230) after firing a 5-over par 76 on Sunday. The Buccaneer men's golf team will now travel to The Farm Golf and Country Club in Dalton, Ga. for the Carpet Capital Collegiate Tournament.
