HATTIESBURG, Miss. - Junior Blake Morris carded a 5-under par 66 in the third and final round of the Sam Hall Intercollegiate Tuesday, propelling him to a career best second-place finish. 

The Waterbury, Conn., native notched seven birdies in his final round, including four straight on No. 15-18, and held a one-shot lead after his third round total of 66, but Joe Sakulpolphaisan, of Mississippi State, birdied his final three holes to best Morris by two shots. Morris' three-round total of 201 marked his best tournament score since the Sam Hall Intercollegiate in 2012 and Chris Schenkel Invitational in 2011 (207).

Ole Miss finished in seventh place, carding a team total of 855 for the three rounds. The Rebels were 7-over par (291) in the third round. Louisiana-Lafayette won the event, finishing with a tournament-record 837.

"I'm very proud of how well Blake played this week," head coach Ernest Ross said. "He was great all week and played fantastic down the stretch to give himself a chance to win. I'm disappointed in how we played as a team. I believe we are better than we showed this week. We don't have much time to sort things out, because we head to Missouri next week for the NCAA preview."

Sophomore Forrest Gamble and junior Joe Lewis finished the tournament in a tie for 35th place after they both recorded a 3-over par 74 and 4-over par 75, respectively, in the third round. Connor Davis and Ben Wolcott, who both finished tied for 75th, posted a total of 225 over the three rounds. 

Tom Brown, who competed as an individual, finished tied for 65th place with a three-round total of 223

Next up, OIe Miss will compete in the NCAA Regional Preview Sept. 16-17 in Columbia, Mo. Fans can follow the Rebels all season on twitter at @OleMissMGolf and on facebook at www.facebook.com/OleMissMGolf.
