Hurricane Matthew Prevents Dolphins from Making Comeback

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. - After Hurricane Matthew dumped over a foot of rain in parts of North Carolina on Saturday, the decision was made to cancel the final round of the 2016 Tar Heel Intercollegiate. Jacksonville finished seventh overall, and had hopes of catching the leaders trailing by just 10 strokes with 18 holes to play.

David Wicks and Sam Uhland tied for 13th after two rounds with scores of one-under-par 143. Wicks had six birdies and 22 holes of par or better, and Uhland had seven birdies and 24 holes of par or better.

Raul Pereda carded a one-over-par 145, tying for 26th with just two strokes separating him from Wicks and Uhland. Elliott Fullalove bounced back from a first round of three-over-par 75 with a second round of one-under-par 71 and tied for 30th with a total of two-over-par 146. Ryan Jahn tied with five other golfers for 46th with a total of five-over-par 149.

UNCW held first place for the entire event with a total of 567. North Carolina trailed by just three strokes at 570, and UNCG and Maryland were six strokes behind first place at 573 apiece. Just three strokes separated fifth-place Liberty (574), sixth place North Florida (575), and seventh place Jacksonville (577).

The Dolphins will return home to Jacksonville to prepare for their final event of the fall season, the Quail Valley Invitational, which will take place October 24 & 25 at the Quail Valley Golf Club in Vero Beach, Fla.
