CAMP LEJEUNE, N.C. – Guilford College sophomore Drew Thompson (Pickerington, Ohio) shot 70-66-76-212 to place fourth at the 42nd annual Marine Federal Credit Union Intercollegiate Golf Tournament Sunday. Teammate Noah Ratner carded a 72-65-76-213 and finished in a share of seventh place in the 160-man field. The pair helped Guilford place sixth in the 32-team field.

The teams each played 18 holes on the par-70, 6,120-yard Scarlet Course and 18 holes on the par-72, 7,040-yard Gold Course at the Paradise Point Golf Club. The low 16 teams completed Sunday on the Gold Course for the tournament crown, while the remaining teams played the Scarlet Course Sunday in a consolation event.

A day after shooting a school-record 268 on the Scarlet Course, Guilford teed off Sunday on the Gold Course in second place, 15 strokes behind defending NCAA Division III champion Oglethorpe University. The Quakers shot 311 in the final round and finished with an 874, 34 strokes behind Oglethorpe, which won the title by shooting 295 Sunday. Methodist University carded a 296 Sunday to finish second at 860, followed by Southeastern University (280-284-300-864) and Webber International University (279-296-294-869). Lee University placed fifth at 300-269-301-870.

Methodist’s Mike Wesko defeated Oglethorpe’s Mike Quinn in a three-hole playoff to win medalist honors after the pair finished tied atop the leader board at 210. Oglethorpe’s Anthony Maccaglia came in third at 211, followed by Guilford’s Thompson and two others at 212.

Guilford’s Nick Shedd shot 78 Sunday and finished in a share of 48th place with a 54-hole 223. Teammate Dallas Page (Reidsville, N.C.) was 54th at 77-68-81-226 and Travis Tolbert 66th with a 79-70-82-231.

This year’s event featured some of the top NCAA Division III and NAIA teams in America. Seven schools are ranked in their respective Nike Golf/Golf World coaches’ polls, including Guilford, Division III’s 11th-ranked squad. Oglethorpe is ranked first in the poll and Methodist is ranked second.

Guilford is back in action April 1-2 at the Emory University Spring Invitational in suburban Atlanta.
