CHARLESTON, S.C. --  The Navy golf team concluded action at the two-day, 54-hole Charleston Shootout Tuesday afternoon, placing 11th out of 14 teams with a 43-over par 907 (302-303-302).  The Mids opened the day in 13th place, but put together a solid 14-over par 302 in the final round, to push past both High Point (299-298-317 = 914) and Western Kentucky (308-294-317 = 919).  

Florida, ranked 25th nationally, took the team title by 15 strokes (282-276-287 = 844) over defending National Champion Augusta State, who turned in a 5-under par 859 (281-288-290).  Charleston Southern made a furious rally in the final round, but came up just a stroke short of taking third.  Radford shot an 11-over par 299 in the final round to place third with an 870 (+6), followed by Charleston Southern (871, +7) in fourth and College of Charleston (875, +11) in fifth.

Taking the individual title was the Gators' T.J. Vogel, ranked eighth nationally, who earned a 1-stroke victory over Charleston Southern's Jacobo Pastor.  Vogel paced the field with a 10-under par 206, while Pastor, who opened the tournament with a 5-under par 67, placed second with a 9-under par 207.

The Midshipmen were led by senior Collier Jones (Little Rock, Ark.), who despite shooting his highest score of the 54-hole tournament (79), placed 31st with a 9-over par 225.  

Sophomore David Hall (Huntersville, N.C.) and rookie August Jonas (Jacksonville, Fla.) finished just outside of the top 50 with a 52nd-place effort behind a 13-over par 229.  Hall (77-79-73)  pushed up more than 20 positions in the final standings after turning in Navy's low round of the day, a 1-over par 73.  Meanwhile, Jonas (77-73-79) struggled in the final round, posting a 7-over par 79 to drop down slightly from 43rd to 52.

Senior Peter Reilly (Merrimack, N.H.) was consistent throughout the tournament, putting together a three-round mark of 230 (+14) to finish in 57th.  Just a stroke behind Reilly was sophomore Drew Selby (Charlotte, N.C.), who finished up with his low round of the event, a 3-over par 75.  He tied for 58th with a 15-over par 231.

Rounding out the Navy slate was senior team captain Tim Shield (Grosse Pointe Park, Mich.), who posted his low round with a 77 (+5).  He placed 69th with an 18-over par 234.

The Midshipmen will use the next two weeks to prepare for a pair of tournaments.  Navy will split its squad the weekend of March 11-13, sending a team to the Bash at the Beach in North Myrtle Beach, S.C., while a second team will compete at the General Hackler Championship in Georgetown, S.C.
