GREENSBORO, N.C. - Led by Sean Bosdosh's 2-under 214 and Tom Harris's 3-over 219, the University of Maryland men's golf team finished tied for eighth at the Bridgestone Golf Collegiate, which concluded on Sunday.
Bosdosh earned his fourth consecutive top 10 finish and shot under par for the fourth straight tournament. His 214 (70-71-73) left him in a tie for sixth with Scott Vincent of Virginia Tech and Albin Choi of NC State. Chattanooga's Chris Robb captured the individual title with a 9-under 207.
Harris, a freshman, finished in the top 10 for the second time this fall with a 219 (71-71-77) which left him in a tie for 10th.
"I thought we played well," said director of intercollegiate golf Jason Rodenhaver. "The guys played well today in tough conditions. Overall, I'm very pleased with the team."
Mississippi State captured the team title with a 3-under 861 (286-286-289), four strokes clear of second-place Chattanooga (1-over 865). The Terps, with a 890 (293-299-298), were just four strokes out of fourth place. Virginia Tech, Mississippi and NC State all finished in a tie for fourth with a 886.
Jordan Sweet had his best round of the weekend under windy conditions on Sunday, firing an even-par 72. Sweet finished in a tie for 43rd with a 228 (81-75-72).
Bosdosh, who entered the weekend leading the ACC in scoring average at 71.27, capped a fall season that saw him win two tournaments and shoot under par in 10 of 14 rounds.
"Sean's been nothing short of spectacular," said Rodenhaver. "He's been great, he's been consistent. He's on his way to being an all-conference player this year. I'm really pleased with the way the freshmen have turned it on here. If we can get some help in the back of the lineup, the spring should be pretty good for us."
