Hokies Tie for Second in Rain-Shortened Tourney
    UNC Charlotte Wins G. Gunby Jordan Intercollegiate
    September 3, 2000

    After battling torrential rains on Saturday and early morning fog on Sunday, the Charlotte 49ers emerged as team champion of the 2000 G. Gunby Jordan Intercollegiate golf tournament held on the Mountainview Course at Callaway Gardens Resort. Charlotte fired a 27-hole total of 438 (+6) to win the event. Scott Shelton of Mississippi State claimed medalist honors by carding a six-under-par total of 102 (69-33).

    Saturday's first round was suspended by heavy rainfall which made the Mountainview tract unplayable, forcing the event to be shortened to 27 holes. The teams finished the suspended round and then played another nine holes to finish the event.

    Charlotte led after 18 holes with a total of 293, and then got a solid round of 145 (+1) to push past the trio of Virginia Tech, Xavier, and Mississippi State who were in the clubhouse at 440. Jeff Curl and Mike Hyland led the charge, each posting even-par totals of 108. Clint Deibert was right behind at 109, while Jason Goble fired a 113 and Sam McFall a 121.

    Shelton claimed the medalist trophy for Mississippi State for the third year in a row. Alex Rocha won the 1998 and 1999 events for the Bulldogs. He finished four shots ahead of Matt Makinson of Xavier and Brian Krusoe of Virginia Tech. Seth Porter of Nebraska finished alone in fourth place, five shots off the pace. Jeff Curl of Charlotte, Jeff Marr of Xavier, Mike

    Hyland, of Charlotte, and Anton Haakman of Columbus State finished in a tie for fifth at 108, six shots off the lead. All of the above players were named to the All-Tournament team.

    Host Columbus State finished in a tie for 10th in the 12-team field.
