Jacksonville, N.C. – Senior Zach Treilobs completed a runner-up finish at this weekend's Camp Lejeune Intercollegiate Classic at the Camp Lejeune Gold and Scarlet courses.
The Transylvania men's golf team placed fifth overall as a team at the three-round tournament which elapsed this past Friday through Sunday. Transylvania turned in a three-round score of 877 to take fifth out of 14 teams which played rounds one and three on Camp Lejeune's par-73 Gold Course and Saturday's round two on the venue's par-70 Scarlet Course.
Treilobs carded three consistent rounds during the weekend to finish in a tie for second place out of 74 golfers with a score of a three-under-par 213. The senior shot a 70 in round one, a 71 on the Scarlet Course in round two, and finished with a one-under 72 back on the Gold Course in Sunday's round three.
As Treilobs paced the Pioneers, the Transylvania men's golf team etched some of their own new milestones into the program's history books on Saturday in the second round. Guided by senior Blake Young's three-under 67 on the Scarlet Course, the Pioneers shot a collective 275, serving as the lowest team score in a single round ever by a Transylvania men's golf team.
Along with Young's 67, Jack Berger shot a 68, Spencer McKinney carded a 69, Harrison Lane delivered a 74, and Treilobs contributed the 71 to factor into the five-under-par 275. The second round performance also served as the first time ever in which the Pioneers shot under a 280 in a round together.
Young took second among the Pioneers and finished in a tie for 21st place with a three-round score of 220, sandwiching his career-low 67 with a 77 in round one and a 76 in round three on the Gold Courses. McKinney shot a 76 in round one and finished with a 78 on Sunday to check into the clubhouse with a three-day 223, finishing with a share of 33rd place.
Berger began the weekend with a 78 and finished with a 79 to shoot a 225, finishing tied for 38th place. Lane rounded out the pack with a 227 as he improved with a 75 on the Gold Course in the final round.
Transylvania returns to the links on Saturday, April 13 as they venture up to the Anderson Country Club in Anderson, Indiana to face off against Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference member Anderson University in an 18-hole dual match. Action tees off at approximately 11:00 a.m.
