WEST POINT, Miss. – Junior Blake Morris fired a 2-under par 70 to lead the Ole Miss men’s golf team in the final round of the Old Waverly Collegiate Championships hosted by Mississippi State Tuesday.

Morris, who posted 13 birdies in the tournament, claimed third place with a three-round score of 8-under 208, marking his third top-five finish this season.

As a team, the Rebels finished in third place with a three-round total of 2-under 862. Host team Mississippi State claimed the tournament title.

“As a group of competitors who want to win we are obviously disappointed in the outcome,” head coach Ernest Ross said. “As a coach, I know our guys tried their hardest, and I am proud of them for giving their best effort. Every team and every player wants to win, but the prize goes to the team that prepares the best. We will go back and prepare for our next tournament. I’m extremely proud of Blake and his continued good play. He’s having a great season.”

Junior Joe Lewis, who tied for 22nd place, carded his best finish of the season, posting a score of 2-over 218. Senior Tom Brown finished in a tie for 28th after firing a 3-under 69 in round two, including four birdies.
