    JACKSON. MO. - A two-hour rain delay spoiled plans for the Southern Illinois University men's golf team which shot a 286, dropping them to third place in the final round of the Harris Fall Invitational, but it didn't keep them from breaking the SIU team all-time low 18-hole (275), 36-hole (561) and 54-hole (855) scores.

    "It was a total team effort," said head coach Leroy Newton. "We will win tournaments shooting scores like that."

    Sean McNemar (71-67-69--207) led the Salukis with a second place finish, up one spot from his third place finish after day one.

    "McNemar played a great tournament," said Newton. "He was very consistant, and made some good decisions throughout the two days."

    Senior co-captain Brian Norman (76-64-70--210) slid up from sixth place to finish third in the final standings. Co-captain Kyle Hosick (72-69-71--212) finished in the top ten as well.

    Andrew Gwinup (75-78-75--228), Roger Welch (76-75-75--226) and Chad Cooper (80-76-77--233) also competed for the Salukis.

    University of Missouri-Kansas City finished first, followed by the host Southeast Missouri State, who moved up from fourth place after day one. The Salukis, who shot a school record 855, finished third in the 12-team tournament

    "We found out we can shoot good numbers, but we still have a lot of work to do to improve," added Newton. "If we work hard good things will happen."
