The William & Mary men's golf team wrapped up play at the Firestone Invitational on Tuesday afternoon, pushing past Ball State to improve to 15th overall in the tournament at 888 (+24).  Maryland held onto the lead to win by two strokes over Akron, 856 (-8) to 858 (-6), and the Terrapins' David Kocher was the individual medalist at 207 (-9).

The Tribe's top duo of Austin Morrison (Charlotte, N.C.) and David Hicks (Cape May Court House, N.J.) both tied for 25th overall, finishing the week at 217 (+1).  Morrison carded a 73 (+1) in the final round, while Hicks shot a 71 (-1), his sixth round of par or better this season. 
He is already just one round shy of the freshman record for such rounds, set by Morrison and Doug Hurson '09.  Junior Davis Morrison (Charlotte, N.C.) turned in a card of 74 (+2), his best of the week, to finish at 228 (+12) and tied for 72nd, and freshman Will Stewart (Charlotte, N.C.) was two strokes back in a tie for 76th.  Sophomore Sam Aronoff (Santa Monica, Calif.) rounded out the team effort in a tie for 81st overall, with a score of 234 (+18).

W&M is off for fall break, but returns to the links on Monday and Tuesday, Oct. 19-20, at the Georgetown Intercollegiate.
