BEALSVILLE, Md. - UNC Greensboro rallied from
an 11-shot deficit on the final day with a final round 290 to win
the Georgetown Intercollegiate at The Members Club at Four Streams
on Tuesday afternoon.
Entering Tuesday's final round at the weather-shortened 36-hole tournament, the Spartans were 11 shots down to Washington State. But UNCG carded a final round 290 to rally for the victory. It was the first team win since the Sam Hall Invitational in October 2006.
Will Almand carded his second consecutive round of 72, while Ryan Heisey bounced back from a Monday score of 78 to shoot a career-best 69 to lead the Spartans. Justin Clement also carded a round of 72 on Tuesday to rally for a Top 20 finish.
Washington State's Hank Fram held on for the individual title, shooting a 75 for a one-shot victory over Detroit's David Byrne and UNCG's Almand.
The Spartans will host the UNCG Bridgestone Collegiate beginning Saturday at Forest Oaks Country Club.
