Men’s golf in eighth at the River Landing Intercollegiate
Jamey Salmon’s three-under par 69 in the opening round propelled the JU men’s golf team to eighth place after two rounds at the River Landing Intercollegiate.
Salmon opened the tournament with the best round of his college career and backed it up with a two-over par, 74, to finish in a tie for 15th individually at one-under par.
The Dolphins carded a three-over par 291 in the morning round and followed with a four-over par 292 in the second round to sit in eighth place at seven-over par.
Liberty leads the 14 team competition at 21-under par, while UNC-Wilmington’s Josh Brock leads the individual competition at 11-under par.
“Today was perfect for scoring and the leaderboard shows it,” said JU head coach Mike Blackburn. “Jamey had a strong round in the morning and played with a lot of confidence all day.”
Bobby Fredeking posted the low round of the afternoon for JU, carding an even-par 72 to sit in a tie for 29th at two-over par.
Gavin Frost carded rounds of 75 and 73 to tie for 44th at four-over par. Dillon Batsel opened with a 76 and followed with a 73 to tie for 51st at five-over par.
Tying Batsel was Stephen Healy, making first appearance of the semester after an injury sidelined him. He opened with a one-over par 73 and followed with a 76.
Playing as an individual, Taylor Szyndlar carded a 74 in the morning and followed with a 75 to tie Healy and Batsel at five-over par.
The Dolphins enter the final round just nine shots back of fourth place on Saturday morning for their final round before the Atlantic Sun Conference Tournament.
