    The men’s golf team took home a fifth place finish on Tuesday at the Coca-Cola Wofford Invitational in Spartanburg, S.C.

    A cumulative team score of 853 for the tournament gave the Horned Frogs their sixth top-10 finish and fourth top-5 finish of the season. The 54-hole score was their third lowest this year.

    Lamar University would go on to win the tournament, firing a team score of 833. Elon followed with a score of 837 and Wofford College right behind with a score of 840.

    The Horned Frogs’ performance was highlighted by low rounds from No. 1 Julien Brun, No. 3 Giulio Castagarna and No. 4 Chelso Barrett during the first day of play. Brun and Castagarna each fired a 68, while Barrett carded a 69. Brun would go on to shoot in the 60’s a second day in a row, carding a 69 on day two.

    Brun, a native from Antibes, France, narrowly missed winning his eighth career tournament title, finishing in a tie for second at 8-under par for the tournament. 

    Castagarna, a freshman from Italy, recorded his best career performance for a 54-hole event with a score of 210, marking his first career top-10 finish.

    Barrett, a freshman from Keene, N.H., also had a strong performance, shooting a tournament score of 214. It was the third lowest in his career for a 54-hole event and his best outing since February
