JONESBORO, Ark. – The University of Tennessee at Martin shot the fourth-best round out of 21 teams at the Arkansas State Red Wolves Intercollegiate this afternoon, finishing the tournament in sixth place.

The Skyhawks shot a 292 this morning, which was five shots better than their second round performance and 14 strokes better than their first round score. UT Martin finished second out of six Ohio Valley Conference schools in the field with a total score of 895 (+43). Host Arkansas State shot a low-round 282 to capture the team championship with a score of 862 (+10).

Brendon Caballero carded a 69 this morning, which ranked as the third-best score out of 110 golfers today. He rounded out his participation in the tournament with an overall score of 219 (+6), which was the ninth-lowest score of the tournament.

Tyler Shellnut’s 74 gave him a total of 220 (+7) for the tournament, which placed him 13th overall. Austin Swafford fired a 73 today for a three-day total of 228 (+15) while Tyler Guy (76 today, 231 overall) and John Sisinni (77, 233) completed the team scoring today.

“Sixth is a very good finish,” UT Martin head coach Jerry Carpenter said. “Our kids had to battle through rain again today for about six holes and they did a nice job playing through the windy conditions and muddy fairways. All in all, it was a good tournament for us and we played well against a very good field.”

UT Martin closes out the regular season next weekend at the Big Blue Intercollegiate. Action from the Hermitage Golf Club in Hermitage, Tenn. will take place on April 13-15.
