JONESBORO, Ark. - Sophomore Connor Steele (Cedar Rapids, Iowa) carded a final-round 72 to pace the Drake men's golf team on the final day at the Arkansas State Red Wolf Intercollegiate on Tuesday (April 3) at the RidgePointe Country Club.

"I was pleased with Connor's (Steele) performance today, as he by far played the best for us today," Bulldog head coach Matt Lewis commented.  "I was really happy for him after his struggles yesterday to bounce back and have a good round and hopefully that is a good sign."

Freshman Dane Worley (Cedar Rapids, Iowa) was unable to keep up his tournament pace in his final round shooting a 78, to finish with a 54-hole total of 219 (70-71-78=219), earning a team-best 29th-place tie.

As a team, Drake posted a final-round 300 to finish 20th with a 907 (305-302-300=907) total.

Redshirt freshman Devin Leland (Huxley, Iowa) and freshman Blake Huser (Altoona, Iowa) each registered scores of 75 in their final rounds to conclude tournament play with 54-hole totals of 223 (74-74-75=223/T-55th) and 232 (78-79-75=232/T-94th), respectively.

Steele tied for 108th place, firing a three-round total of 238 (85-81-72=238).

Rounding out the Bulldogs' effort tying for 114th place was sophomore Matt Ohl (Milford, Iowa), shooting a 54-hole score of 240 (85-81-79=240).

"We now have two weeks off to regroup and work on some things and get ready for our final two events," said Lewis.

Drake resumes competition at the Boilermaker Invitational (April 21-22) in West Lafayette, Ind., in the Bulldogs last tune-up prior to the State Farm Missouri Valley Conference Championship (April 30-May 1).

DRAKE INDIVIDUAL RESULTS: Dane Worley 219 (70-71-78=219/T-29th), Devin Leland 223 (74-74-75=223/T-55th), Blake Huser 232 (78-79-75=232/T-94th), Connor Steele 238 (85-81-72=238/T-108th) and Matt Ohl 240 (83-78-79=240/T-114th).
