HATTIESBURG, Miss. – Sophomore Joe Lewis carded a 4-under 67 in the final round of the Sam Hall Intercollegiate to lead Ole Miss to the win on Tuesday. The Rebels finished one shot ahead of rival Mississippi State and it marked Ole Miss’ first tournament win since the 2010 Mobile Bay Intercollegiate.

Lewis, a native Savannah, Ga., birdied 6-of-7 on holes 8-14, including four-straight on 11-12-13-14, on his way to a score of 67. The round of 4-under par catapulted Lewis into a tie for 21st and tied for the lowest round of the tournament. It also marked the lowest round of his career, besting his round of 68 at last year’s Mason Rudolph Championship.

Sophomore Blake Morris fired a 1-under par 71 in his final round and finished the tournament in third with a three-day total of 207, two shots behind the medalist Victor Lange of Louisiana Tech. It marked Morris’ best career finish since tying for seventh at last year’s Chris Schenkel Invitational. Junior Tom Brown carded a 2-under par 69 to finish in a tie for 17th, after he started his round with four-straight birdies and finished the tournament with a three-day total of 214.

“It was a very close tournament coming down the stretch,” said Ole Miss head coach Ernest Ross. “We had some guys make clutch shots and putts to give us the edge. I am really proud of our guys exhibiting a great attitude all day, from the time we got to the course to the trophy presentation. It’s a great way to start the year.”

Freshman Connor Davis finished his final round with a 3-over par 74, while follow freshman Forrest Gamble carded a 4-over 75. Senior Chad Bounds finished with a 6-over 77 competing as an individual.

Next up, OIe Miss will compete in the Mason Rudolph Championship Sept. 21-23 in Franklin, Tenn. Fans can follow the Rebels all season on twitter at @OleMissMGolf and on facebook at www.facebook.com/OleMissMGolf.
