ROCKY FACE, Ga.
(Sept. 12, 2010) - ETSU senior Paul O'Kane (Castledawson, Northern Ireland) fired a final round 1-under par 71 to lead the No. 32 ranked Bucs at the Carpet Capital Collegiate on Sunday afternoon.
The Bucs finished in 11th place (295-302-302899) for the tournament after recording their second straight total of 302 on The Farm Golf Club layout (par-72, 7,012 yards).

O'Kane recorded three birdies and two bogeys during his final round to climb the leaderboard and finish tied for 34th (76-76-71223). He was also ETSU's top finisher on the weekend.

No. 15 Alabama (280-287-289856) won the team title by four strokes after posting a solid 1-over par total in Sunday's final round to finish at 8-under par for the tournament. No. 39 Wake Forest finished in second at 4-under while No. 10 Georgia Tech and No. 17 Clemson tied for third at 2-under.

Lee Bedford of Wake Forest claimed individual medalist honors after putting together two very impressive rounds on the weekend.

His Wake Forest teammate Evan Beck finished in second at 8-under while Blayne Barber of Auburn finished third at 6-under.

ETSU freshman Spencer Lawson (Raleigh, N.C.) capped off a solid first career collegiate tournament with a final round 76 to finish just behind O'Kane in 39th position (73-75-76224).
