POWELLS POINT, N.C. - Redshirt sophomore Devin Leland (Huxley, Iowa) fired a season-low 70 to lift the Drake men's golf team to a 16th-place showing at the Old Dominion/Outer Banks Invitational at the Kilmarlic Golf Club on Tuesday (Oct. 23).

The Bulldogs turned in a 54-hole score of 928 (322-305-301=928) in their final event of the fall campaign.

"Devin (Leland) played really well for us today as he hit a lot of good shots and turned in a great round," Drake head coach Matt Lewis commented.  "Most of the guys played very good on the front nine before they each ran into a couple of holes coming down the stretch that kept them from turning in really good scores and contributing to a great round for us as a team."

Leland garnered the Bulldogs' top finish with a 227 (84-73-70=227) performance, good for a 43rd-place tie.

Sophomore Blake Huser (Altoona, Iowa) crafted his second-straight round in the 70's with a 77 to finish tied for 64th, with a three-round total of 235 (80-78-77=235).

Junior Matt Ohl (Milford, Iowa) carded a 76 for his final round, but fell one shot off Huser's pace for the tournament with a 236 (82-78-76=236) score.

Sophomore Dane Worley (Des Moines, Iowa) and freshman Will McDonald (Tulsa, Okla.) concluded their fall campaign with marks of 79 and 78, respectively, to place 76th and 87th.

The Bulldogs open their spring campaign at the Big Four Championship in Phoenix, Ariz., (Feb. 16, 2013).

"We now have some time off before our next event and that will allow us to evaluate and work on some things to help make us a stronger team when we return to the course in the spring," said Lewis.

DRAKE RESULTS: Devin Leland (84-73-70=227/T-43rd), Blake Huser (80-78-77=235/T-64th), Matt Ohl (82-78-76=236/T-71st), Dane Worley (83-76-79=238/T-76th) and Will McDonald (77-87-78=242/T-87th)
