Men's golf ties for eighth at VSGA Intercollegiate

Carter Old hits a chip shot on a golf course.

Suffolk, Va. -- University of Lynchburg's men's golf team played to a tie for eighth place Monday and Tuesday at the Virginia State Golf Association's Intercollegiate Championship, hosted by Sleepy Hole Golf Club.

The Hornets carded a two-day total of 54-over-par 630 (318-312) on the par-72, 6,599-yard track, finishing 36 strokes behind tournament champion Virginia Union.

Junior Carter Old (Chesapeake, Va.) fared best for Lynchburg in his return to the Tidewater region. Old made use of three birdies to fire a 1-under 71 on the tournament's first day, tying his previous low collegiate round, and finished with a 79 to finish at 6-over 150. That was good enough for 12th place.

The rest of the Hornets recovered from a difficult first day to drop six strokes in their second round.

Freshman Ben Ailsworth (Lynchburg, Va.) led the way Tuesday, shooting 3-over 75. He finished in a tie for 28th with a two-day score of 13-over 157.

Juniors Justin Wimmer (Vinton, Va.) (82-78--160) and Russell Markley (Remington, Va.) (83-80--163) and senior Branson Terrell (Lynchburg, Va.) (86-80--166) also competed for the Hornets.

Lynchburg will wrap up its fall season next week, Oct. 22-23, with a trip to Greensboro, N.C. and Sedgefield Country Club for the O'Briant-Jensen Memorial, hosted by Guilford College.
