KAUAI, Hawaii - Junior Blake Morris fired a 5-under par 67 to lead the Ole Miss men's golf team in the final round of the Princeville Warrior Classic at the Makai Golf Club at Princeville Wednesday.

Morris, a native of Waterbury, Conn., tied for 11th overall, carding a three-round total of 208 on the strength of six birdies in the final round.

Freshman Noah West, who tied for 20th, shot a 2-under 70 in round three, en route to his second top-20 finish of the season. His three-round total of 211 is a career-low tournament score.

"I am proud of the way our team fought and stayed patient," head coach Ernest Ross said. "We didn't get off to a great start. With about six holes to go, we were only 1-under par. Blake especially finished well, shooting birdies on four of his last five holes. He had a great 67, even though he made a double bogey on his first hole. I am seeing good improvement."

After starting the day in ninth place, the Rebels finished the tournament tied for sixth. Ole Miss fired a season-low team score of 19-under par 845 over the three days.

Junior Joe Lewis had his best finish of the season, carding a 3-under 69 in round three. The Savannah, Ga., native tied for 28th place with a three-round total of 212, tying his career-low tournament score.

Sophomore Forrest Gamble finished the tournament with a 47th-place finish, shooting an even par 216. Freshman Ben Wolcott, who tied for 68th, carded a three-round total of 5-over 221.

The Princeton Warrior Classic marked the Rebels' final tournament of the fall. Ole Miss will tee off in the spring at the Mobile Bay Intercollegiate on Feb. 17.
