The Chattanooga Mocs finished seventh at the Southern Conference Championships. The quintet closed with 297 on the Oconee Course at Reynolds Lake Oconee.
For the third straight round, a different Moc led the scoring. A.J. Lintunen shot 1-over 73 with 17 straight pars before bogeying his final hole. It was a frustrating for the Finn as it included fairway after fairway and green after green ending with pars with hole after hole narrowly averting his birdie efforts.
Matt Smith added 74 with two late birdies, while Paul Conroy and Gabe Hunter turned in 75s. Connor Nolan had the drop score of 77.
Lintunen edged Nolan for team-low honors for the week. A.J. shot 224 with Nolan just a shot back at 225. That train continued with Smith next with 226 and Conroy at 227 ahead of Hunter’s 228.
ETSU claimed the win by eight over runner-up Western Carolina. The Bucs Archie Davies won medalist with 207.
