MOBILE, Ala.Junior Blake Morris fired a 1-under par 71 to lead Ole Miss in the third and final round of the Mobile Bay Intercollegiate Tuesday at Magnolia Grove Crossings Golf Course.

Morris carded a three-round total of 214 and tied for eighth overall with Charlie Bull of Akron and Cory Gaylord of Memphis, en route to his third top-10 finish this season.

Sophomore Connor Davis was tied for seventh place after the first two rounds of play, but had to withdraw due to illness.

“I am really proud of our players today,” head coach Ernest Ross said. “We only had four players today after Connor Davis got the stomach flu during his round yesterday and couldn’t go today. I was a little worried we might not have the four players needed for a team score, which would result in a last place finish. The four guys today played really well knowing they had pressure on them. Blake Morris had another good finish. I am proud of his effort and discipline.”

Sophomore Forrest Gamble notched a 26th-place finish, posting a 221 tournament total. Junior Joe Lewis finished eight-over par and tied for 47th place. Freshman Drew Comer, who was competing in his first tournament, posted a three-round total of 228 and tied for 57th.

After starting the day in seventh, the Rebels finished the tournament in sixth place. The team posted a three-round score of 11-over 875. No. 27 Auburn claimed the tournament title.

In the individual tournament, freshman Ben Wolcott tied for 12th place with a 14-over 227. Sophomore Chris Ingham finished in a tie for 22nd place, carding a 20-over 233.

Ole Miss will be back in action Sunday, March 2 at the Querencia Cabo Collegiate in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. Follow the Rebels all season long on Twitter at @OleMissMGolf and on Facebook at Facebook.com/OleMissMGolf.
