Stags finish 13th at NCAA Championships

GREENSBORO, N.C. – The Claremont-Mudd-Scripps men's golf team totaled the exact same number of strokes (306) on the final two days of the NCAA Golf Championships at Grandover Resort on May 15, earning the Stags 13th place.

During the four rounds in the tournament, the lone upperclassman in the Stags' lineup, Kethan Reddy (CMC), made 13 birdies, with the leader at 17. Reddy shot the low round for the second day in a row for CMS at 75 and finished in a tie for 26th place overall.

Freshman Jonathan Shaw (CMC) was the most consistent Stag during the tournament with his lowest round at one-under and highest at five-over. On Friday, his 77 was good for a tie at 38th place individually. Another freshman, Matt Shuman (CMC), started off the tournament hot but then was plagued by bogeys on the final two days of the championships resulting in a tie of 42nd place.

Johnny Brandt (CMC) had his best round of the tournament with a 76 at four-over. Brandt made 47 pars in 72 holes, placing him in the top 15 players of the tournament in that category. Jackson Zepf (CMC) completed his first collegiate season tied for 80th place individually after an 87 on the final day.

After Thursday's round, La Verne sat in 12th place while Redlands was in fifth. CMS ended up edging out the Leos by two strokes as they finished in 14th despite the SCIAC Athlete of the year, Kelby Scharmann, earning the individual title. Redlands stayed in fifth place after a few an uncharacteristically high rounds from the No. 1 seeded team.

After two straight years at Grandover, the Division III Men's Golf Tournament moves to Rochester, New York, where St. John Fisher University hosts the 2016 event at the Midvale Country Club and the Mendon Golf Club.
