Scouting the Tribe
W&M is playing its second tournament in the space of five days, after taking eighth at Georgetown on Monday and Tuesday.  The line-up for this weekend will be the same, with juniors Alex Hicks (Cape May Court House, N.J.) and Charlie Kern (Seattle, Wash.) donning the Green and Gold alongside senior Tanner Taddeo (Hendersonville, Tenn.) and twin rookies Davis Morrison (Charlotte, N.C.) and Austin Morrison (Charlotte, N.C.).  As a team, the Tribe is averaging 290.89 strokes per round through three events, the best mark in school history by almost five full strokes.

Individually, Hicks is averaging 69.44 strokes per 18, two strokes ahead of the best pace for an entire season.  Georgetown was the toughest field and toughest course the Tribe has played so far, and still Hicks managed to come away with a 14th-place finish and another round of par or better, making it six of nine so far in 2013-14.  Davis Morrison is third overall on the team at 73.44 strokes per round, on pace to break to break the freshman record by a stroke.  Austin Morrison is also on pace to better the existing record at 74.44 strokes per round, fifth on the squad, and Taddeo separates the two freshmen with his 74.00 pace.  This will be Kern's second outing on the varsity, as he looks to improve upon his 74.67 average and 40th-place finish at Georgetown.
