    The Southern Illinois men's golf team moved up two places to finish third out of 15 teams after the final round of the Frito Lay/Taco Bell Intercollegiate on Monday. Missouri-St. Louis won with a 14-over team score, followed by UT-Martin at 27-over and SIU at 36-over.

    Saluki golfers Caleb Harms and Drew Novara both tied for second place among the 84 competitors with a 2-over score. Harms had the low round of tournament with a 69 today and led the field with eight birdies. Wade Thompson finished in 13th place at 8-over and had the most pars of any golfer at the tournament with 28.

    "Caleb was very consistent today hitting the fairways and greens and made a couple of putts," SIU head coach Leroy Newton said. "Drew hit 15 greens yesterday but had a few bad breaks or he could have won the tournament."

    The tournament was hosted by Jackson State and played at the 7,128-yard Azaleas course of the Dancing Rabbit Golf Club in Choctaw, Miss.

    "As a team, we gained six shots from the day before and had three kids play very well throughout the tournament," Newton said. "It was our first time outside this spring and the kids were antsy and eager to play. It's a little different than hitting off a mat, and I thought we were a little timid at the start, but I told them to have some fun and learn from it."
