TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - UCF shot a final round 9-over-par 297 Tuesday and finished third of 12 teams in the Seminole Intercollegiate at Golden Eagle Country Club. Senior Andreas Hoegberg shot a 3-over-par 75 Tuesday and was UCF's highest finisher. He tied for fifth place at 1-under-par for the tournament.

Coastal Carolina led from wire-to-wire and posted a 12-stroke victory over Vanderbilt, which entered the final round in third place, five strokes behind UCF. The Commodores finished at 14-over-par, three shots better than the Golden Knights. North Carolina (+20) finished fourth, followed by Virginia (+21) and host Florida State (+22).

Rhys Davies of East Tennessee State closed out his wire-to-wire victory with a 1-under-par 71 to finish at 9-under-par, six shots ahead of Coastal Carolina's Moises Cobo.

UCF freshman Preston Brown finished in a tie for 12th at 3-over-par after carding a 2-over-par 74 Tuesday. Fellow freshman Ben Leong fired the low round of the day for the Golden Knights with a 1-over-par 73 and posted the first top 20 finish of his young career, finishing at 6-over-par.

Freshman Chris Anderson finished tied for 49th for the Golden Knights at 14-over after shooting 77 Tuesday and freshman Giwon Suh rebounded from a disappointing round Monday to close with a 75 to tie for 56th.
