JACKSON, Tenn. -- The Centenary men’s golf team, led by the play of Tyler Williams, finished in 10th place at the Grover Page Classic, played in Jackson, Tenn. at the Jackson Country Club.

Shooting a season-best round of 298 in the third round of this week’s tournament, the Gents finished with a tournament total score of 921 to finish in 10th place.

Williams, a freshman from Shreveport, shot a career-best 73 in the final round of this week’s tournament to finish in a tie for 15th at the Grover Page. With a tournament total score of 225, Williams captured his first top 20 finish of his collegiate career, going 74-78-73 over the two-day event.

Carding the best round of any Centenary player in the final round and recording his best round as a collegian, freshman Mark Weeber (Harare, Zimbabwe) had a three-round score of 231 to stand in tie for 35th in the tournament. Weeber shot a 1-under 71 in Tuesday’s final round to lead all Gent players, shooting back-to-back 80’s in the first two rounds.

Tuesday marked the first time this season that two freshmen stood as the top two finishers for the Gents this season.

Struggling in the second round of the Grover Page, senior David Viviano (Lafayette, La.) finished in tie for 54th in the tournament. Viviano stood as the first round leader with a 2-under 70 Monday. In the second round, the senior went through his worst round this season, carding a 90 and falling out of contention for the tournament crown. Viviano shot a 4-over 76 to close the tournament with a three-round total of 236.

John Hogan (Eden Prairie, Minn.) finished tied for 59th with a 237, while Nick Faitz (North Little Rock, Ark.) shot a 78 in the third round to finish in a tie for 69th with a 242.

Holding the team lead following Monday’s first round, North Alabama shot 291-289 over the second and third rounds, respectively, to win the team title. The Lions won the tournament with a team score of 868, holding a 15 stroke advantage over Tennessee Tech (883).

In the individual competition, Scott Stallings of Tennessee Tech won the tournament in a playoff over Wes Smith of North Alabama. Stallings shot 71-69-68 over the two days to finish with a 208.

Centenary looks to build off its best round of the season when it travels to Sam Houston State next week for the Bearkat Classic at the Ravens Next Golf Course in Huntsville, Texas.
