    March 19, 2002

    AIKEN, S.C. -- Virginia Tech, with four players in the top 20 individually, set a school and tournament record in winning the Cleveland Golf Collegiate Championship at the 6,380 yard, par-71 Palmetto Golf Club in Aiken, S.C. on Tuesday afternoon.

    The Hokies' three-round total of 836 establishes a new school record for low score in a tournament. The score also sets the new tournament mark for the event, breaking the old mark by 13 strokes.

    Senior Johnson Wagner (Garrison, N.Y.) tied for the individual title in regulation before falling on the third hole in a sudden-death playoff to Tele Wightman of South Florida. Wagner played all three rounds at par or better and shot a nine-under-par 64-71-69=204.

    Junior Brendon de Jonge (Harare, Zimbabwe) finished fifth with a five-under-par 70-67-71=208. Senior Brian Krusoe (Northfield, Ohio) tied for 10th with a 76-67-68=211 and sophomore Ryan Stinnett (Amherst, Va.) tied for 18th place, after shooting an even-par 73-70-70=213. Junior Chris McKeel (Wilson, N.C.) was 75th with a 79-78-76=233. Sophomore Matt Hollerbach (Tulsa, Okla.), playing as an individual, finished tied for 52nd with a 78-72-73=223.

    The Hokies won the event with a 16-under-par 283-275-278=836. South Florida finished second, 15 shots back at 851. Texas-Arlington and Kansas tied for third at 854 and Furman was fifth at 855.

    Tech finished third in last season's event. The Hokies will stay in the Palmetto State this week and try to defend their title at the Furman Invitational this Friday and Saturday.
