SORRENTO, Fla. - Freshman Ryan McCarthy shot a 1-over par 72 to finish with a three-round total of 214, leading Loyola for the third day in a row at the NCAA Southeast Regional at RedTail Golf Club.

McCarthy finished 1-over for the tournament after posting rounds of 69-73-72 to finish in a tie for 40th place at the regional.

"Ryan had a tremendous tournament," Loyola Head Coach Tom Beidleman said. "He played very solid golf from start to finsh."

The Greyhounds finished in 14th place at the regional with a three-round 888 after shooting 302 for the second consecutive day. Central Florida, the host school, took the top team spot with a 34-under total of 818. Arizona, Georgia and South Carolina tied for second 11 strokes back.

"Obviously, we would have liked to have played better, more consistent golf, but it was a great experience for everyone," Beidleman said.
