RICHMOND, Va. — The Southern Virginia University men's golf team wrapped up its third two-day tournament of the year with a 16th-place on Tuesday at the Virginia State Golf Association Intercollegiate Championship, held at Stonehenge Golf & Country Club

"We have been improving," head golf coach Blair Garner said, "but I think everyone feels like they have the ability to play a lot better. This was the strongest field of opponents we play against and it gives our team an indication of where we are and the amount of improvement we need to make."

Cameron Speyer led the Knights both days, shooting a season-best 76 on Monday and a 78 on Tuesday. He finished 45th overall at 12-over-par.  Dustin Taylor shaved nine strokes from round one to two, going from an 89 to an 80, with two birdies on Tuesday.
