The William and Mary men's golf team successfully navigated challenging course conditions Tuesday, shooting the best round of the day at 305 to win the Whiting Turner Towson Invitational by 25 strokes.  The 19th tournament title for the Tribe, this weekend's win is the first since 2005, and came after a three-day total of 888 (+24).

Senior Jeremy Wells (Hopewell, Va.) won the individual medal, his first, by three strokes after finishing the week at 216 (E).  He is the Tribe's first medalist since 2008, when both Doug Hurson '09 and Brent Paladino '09 won tournaments.  Wells is also the ninth W&M player to win while also leading his squad to the team title, and the first since Gary Barton '05 at the 2005 Cavalier Classic.

Joining Wells on the all-tournament team were sophomores Charlie Kern (Seattle, Wash.) and Alex Hicks (Cape May Court House, N.J.).  Kern finished third overall at 223 (+7) after his Tuesday round of 76, while Hicks was one stroke back in a tie for fourth.  Classmate Joey Shroyer (Victoria, Minn.) also shot 76 in the final round, and finished tied for sixth overall at 225 (+9).  Rounding out the team effort was junior Tanner Taddeo (Hendersonville, Tenn.), who tie dfor 30th at 233.

William and Mary now has a little more than three weeks off, before returning to the course Saturday and Sunday, April 20-21, at the N.C. State Wolfpack Classic.
