“Through 12 holes today we had caught and passed Johnson & Wales,” said Eastern Florida head coach Jamie Howell.

“We didn’t finish it off. We played the final six holes 10 over par. DeMorat was solid again, finishing second and Sweeney and Gray were both solid all three rounds. We need to keep improving the little areas and we will be a threat at each event on our schedule.”

Eastern Florida finished Tuesday’s final round with a 291 for a total of 862. Johnson & Wales, a four-year school from North Miami, shot 287 for 855.

Individually for Eastern Florida Michael DeMorat shot 69 for 211; Kerry Sweney and Brad Gray 73 for 218; Dalton Bartlett 76 for 220 and Michael Keymont 79 for 226.

Eastern Florida finished second in its season-opening tournament at Wallace State in Cullman, Alabama. Next up for the Titans is the Collegiate Players Cup against Florida Tech. Play begins Oct. 17.
