Men's golf finishes sixth at ODAC championships

Branson Terrell putting

Greensboro, N.C. -- University of Lynchburg's men's golf team played its way to sixth place, carding a three-round team total of 943 in the Old Dominion Athletic Conference championships early this week at Bryan Park's Champions Course.

Lynchburg polished off a number of season milestones at the championship tournament, including a new team single-season average record of 307.5 over their 19 rounds.

Senior Branson Terrell (Lynchburg, Va.) led the way for the Hornets at ODACs as he had much of the season. Terrell carded rounds of 80, 78 and 77 to finish in 27th with a three-round total of 235. His scores were low enough to cement him as the program's new low career average holder, 76.2 over his 39 rounds.

Terrell's 2018-19 average of 75.2 over 19 rounds ranks second on Lynchburg's single-season leaderboard.

He was honored at the annual ODAC golf banquet Monday evening as the league's Ted Keller Sportsman of the Year and also earned second-team all-conference honors for his outstanding season.

Junior Carter Old (Chesapeake, Va.) finished in a tie for 28th (81-77-79=237), while freshman Harry Hodgert (Lynchburg, Va.) and sophomore Josh Petrillo (Leesburg, Va.) were two strokes behind at 239. Hodgert was the Hornets' low man on Tuesday, shooting a 4-over-par 76, while Petrillo had the team's best opening round at 5-over 77 Sunday.

Freshman Ben Ailsworth (Lynchburg, Va.) finished in a tie for 35th (86-78-80=244) to round out the Lynchburg finishers.

Washington and Lee won the team title at 870, finishing seven strokes ahead of runner-up Guilford. GC's James Mishoe took medalist honors, winning in a playoff over W&L's Brian Peccie.
