SUFFOLK, Va. - The Bridgewater College men's golf team posted a team score of 314 to finish where they started the day at Sleepy Hole Golf Course, in seventh place among 16 teams at the VSGA Intercollegiate Championship.

Junior Ronald Uszenski bounced back from a first-round 79 to shoot a quiet 74 on Tuesday. He matched a pair of bogeys with a pair of birdies and had just one double-bogey on the par-5 10th hole. Uszenski moved up to finish in the top-20 (18th) among 93 players.

Sophomore Brendan Draughn also moved in a good direction for the final round, shaving seven strokes to post 79, featuring an eagle on the par-5 5th hole. Draughn added birdies on the 4th and 16th holes as well.

Freshman A.J. Stouffer, plagued by a couple big numbers in the first round, had three double bogeys on Tuesday as well, but posted the third score for the Eagles, an 80.

Senior Michael Gruver counted for the the second straight round and he matched Draughn's eagle on #5 on his way to an 81.

Sophomore Jason Spaar, consistently strong in scrambling, missed a few up-and-down attempts in the final round and shot 82, falling into a tie for 28th.

Playing as an individual, freshman Seth Smallwood dropped a shot on Tuesday to shoot 83.

Virginia Union shot the round of the tournament (293) to sneak past Randolph-Macon for the team title, while Verun Yerramserri of Hampden-Sydney shot a one-under total of 143 to claim the medal.

The Eagles are back in action next week at Guilford.
