Johnson City, Tenn. (Sept. 15, 2002) - East Tennessee State's men's golf squad got its 2002-03 season officially underway this weekend finishing sixth at the Bank of Tennessee Intercollegiate at The Ridges, the fifth annual tournament hosted by the Bucs. Wake Forest took home top honors in the event, shooting a three-round score of 876 (287-294-295), defeating runner-up North Carolina by two strokes. ETSU shot an 886 (299-291-296) for the event. East Tennessee State was led individually by senior James Johnson (Barbados). An All-Southern Conference performer last year, Johnson shot a 73 on the final day for a three-round total of 217 (74-70-73; +1), good for eighth place overall and just two strokes off the top individual score in the tournament. Finishing just two shots behind Johnson was sophomore Jeremy Hobson (Thonotosassa, Fla.), who finished in a tie for 13th with his 219 (72-72-75; +3) score. Five golfers took home a share of the medallist honors, with Leif Olson (Duke), Ian Parnaby (Tennessee), Dustin Bray (North Carolina), Bill Haas (Wake Forest) and David Schultz (TCU) all carding a one-under par 215 (-1) for the three rounds.
