Toledo, Ohio – In its second tournament of the season, the Virginia men’s golf team tied for sixth at the Inverness Intercollegiate in Toledo, Ohio. The Cavaliers posted a final-round score of even par 284 for a 54-hole total of 21-over 873. Auburn won the tournament at 9-under 843.

UVA could not overcome a slow start at the 13-team event. After shooting 12-over 296 during Monday’s first round, the Hoos were just 9-over for their final 36 holes.

The Cavaliers were led by 10th-place showings from senior Jimmy Stanger (Tampa, Fla.) and junior Danny Walker (Bradenton, Fla.) Both players finished at even par 213 at the Inverness Club, which was set up as a par-71 course for the tournament.

Stanger shot 73 during his final round while Walker finished with a 75. It was Stanger’s 10th top-10 performance during his UVA career and marked the eighth time Walker has placed that high. Walker competed as an individual competitor during the tournament.

Senior All-American Derek Bard (New Hartford, N.Y.) was 16th at 215. He shot 70 on Tuesday while sophomore Thomas Walsh (High Point, N.C.) carded the team’s low round with a 2-under 69. Walsh placed 26th at 218.

Freshmen Luke Schaap (Potomac, Md.) and freshman Andrew Orischak (Hilton Head Island, S.C.) rounded out UVA’s scoring. Schaap shot 72 during the final round and finished 53rd at 227 while Orischak was 67th at 234. The tournament marked Orischak’s collegiate debut.

UVA returns to action Oct. 14-16 when the Cavaliers compete at the Bank of Tennessee Intercollegiate in Johnson City, Tenn.
