ORANGE PARK, Fla. – Brevard opened the spring portion of its schedule with a 13th-place finish at the Spring Kickoff Intercollegiate.
The Tornados were 61 over par in the 54-hole tournament, which wrapped up with 18 holes on Tuesday. The Tornados shot a 315 on a final day of competition that saw nearly all of the 17 teams in attendance struggle with difficult course conditions.
Brevard was paced by Paul Calac, whose six-over 77 on Tuesday placed him 23rd with a tournament score of eight over par. Calac was the only Tornado to shoot under par in a round, firing a 70 in Monday’s second round.
Oskar Lundgren, who closed out the fall with an individual win at the Division I Hummingbird Intercollegiate, was right on Calac’s heels with a 24th-place finish at nine over par. Lundgren was consistent throughout the tournament, with rounds of 73, 75, and 74.
Trym Falch and Luis Vega shot 19- and 28-over, respectively, to finish third and fourth on the Tornados’ roster. Sebastian Strehl and Craig Stephen also appeared in the tournament, firing personal-best rounds of six- and eight-over, respectively during Monday’s second round.
Brevard finished fourth among the five South Atlantic Conference teams in attendance, besting Wingate by four strokes. Carson-Newman was the top-finishing league team at four strokes behind tournament leader Armstrong State. Lincoln Memorial tied for sixth with Lander 16 strokes off the pace, with Coker finishing 11th overall.
North Greenville’s Christian Constance won the overall tournament by one stroke over Armstrong State’s Jake O’Bryan on the strength of a first-round 64, seven under par. Constance finished nine under for the tournament. Third-place Dalton Reese of Carson-Newman was six strokes back.
Brevard will next compete in two weeks, sending one team of golfers to the Tim Tierney Pioneer Shootout in Vallejo, California, while another competes at the Richard Rendleman Invitational in Salisbury.
