Oct. 3, 2006

Williamsburg, Va. - Sophomore Blake Furgerson fired an even-par 70 to lead Loyola to a runner-up finish at the 2006 Joe Agee Invitational in Williamsburg, Va. on Tuesday afternoon. Furgerson, who shot a 54-hole score of 206, was also runner-up in the individual tournament standings at Stonehouse Golf Club.

"I thought we played a very good golf tournament against a very good field," says Loyola Head Coach Tom Beidleman. "Old Dominion played exceptionally well and our hats are off to them. We played three solid rounds of golf and I'm pleased with our finish."

Old Dominion set the course ablaze with a three-round team total of 842. The Greyhounds, who finished 10 strokes ahead of third-place East Carolina, fired an 851 with rounds of 280-284-287. The field, filled with strong District II competition, saw No. 5 James Madison place ninth and No. 6 Columbia finish 14th against the seventh-ranked `Hounds.

Furgerson, who shot rounds of 66-70-70, has finished under par in two of the three tournaments he has played this season. Sophomore Michael Mulieri, who scored a 71 in his final round, finished tied for fifth overall with a three-round score of 209.

Both Matt Bassler and Will Shriver shot rounds of 73 on Tuesday. Bassler scored a 216 in his 54 holes while Shriver finished with a 220. Junior Chris Derby rounded out the Greyhound scoring with a round of 78 and tournament tally of 232.

The Greyhounds return to Pittsburgh, Pa. next Monday-Tuesday, October 9-10 when they defend their 2005 team title at the Crowne Plaza Invitational. Last season, Loyola won the tournament by three strokes over Dayton, scoring a two-day total of 602.
