Sept. 9, 2003

KIAWAH ISLAND, S.C. - Tim Kane of Maryland shot a 73 Tuesday to finish with a 1-under total of 143 and earn a tie for eighth place individually at the Cleveland Golf / Kiawah Island Intercollegiate Golf Tournament hosted by the College of Charleston.

Kane was the top finisher for the Terrapins in the two-day tournament, which was shortened to 36 holes due to rain on Monday. He shot a 70 in the first round on the Turtle Point course at the Kiawah Island resort.

Maryland also finished in a tie for eighth as a team, carding a 298 Tuesday to finish with a 36-hole total of 598. Kentucky blistered the field with a 282 team total in the second round, finishing at 580 and coming home three shots better than Georgia State and four shots lower than Georgia Southern. The Wildcats started Tuesday's play six shots behind first-round leader Ole Miss, which dropped to a tie for eighth with the Terps and the host College of Charleston.

Dan MacDonald had the best round of the day for the Terps, shooting a 72 on Tuesday to finish tied for 32nd at 151. Tyler Witman shot 77 yesterday to finish at 148, good enough for a tie for 23rd. John Eades had a 76 in his second round, tying for 63rd at 160, while Jeff Spradlin had an 83 Tuesday to place 70th at 163.

Aron Price held on to his first-round lead to win the individual title. He followed Monday's 65 with a 70 on Tuesday, finishing at 9-under 135. John Holmes of Kentucky was second at 140 after a second-round 68, one of three sub-par rounds by the Wildcats on Tuesday.
