Orlando, Fla. (www.ucfathletics.com) - The UCF men's golf team wrapped up its three-day tournament in Tallahassee taking 11th place at the Seminole Intercollegiate.

For the second time in the three rounds the Knights posted a team score of 299 (+11). Stern's 71, which saw him card six birdies, was the second lowest round of his brief UCF career and was a 10-shot improvement from his second round on Monday.

East Tennesse State's Rhys Davies won medalist honors with a total of 210 (-6), bettering UAB's Zach Sucher by two strokes (212, -4).

Junior Giwon Suh (Orlando, Fla./Olympia) fired his second-consecutive 73 (+1) to finish the tournament in a tie for 16th, which was the highest finish by a Knight. Suh closed out his round recording two birdies and an eagle in his last four holes. Sophomore Preston Brown (Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla./Nease) turned in a 75 (+3) on the final round, his best of the tournament, and tied classmate Greg Forest (Palm City, Fla./Martin County) for 60th.
