The Ohio men’s golf team finished in eighth place at Longaberger Country Club in Nashport, Ohio, as Kent State went on to win its fifth consecutive MAC Championship title.

Ohio finished in eighth place consistently during the three day event, not budging from the eighth spot from Friday through Sunday.

Junior Connor Coldwater recorded the lowest one-round score of the entire tournament for the Bobcats on Sunday, shooting a 70. Senior Brad Lucas was not far behind, shooting a 73 in the final round.

Coldwater recorded six birdies en route to his -2 score on the day, which were the most birdies anyone had in the final round. He also finished tied for ninth in par 4 scoring and tied for 29th overall.

On the other hand, senior Michael Lamping had his worst round of the tournament on Sunday, posting an 80. Once in a tie for fourth place overall, Lamping plummeted to a tie for 19th place, still the highest finish for any Bobcat.

Senior Byron Firestone shot an 80 on Sunday as well, and it too was his worst one-round score of the tournament. Firestone finished tied at 29th overall in the standings with teammate Connor Coldwater with a 314 (+26) over the four rounds of golf.

Andrew Mlynarski finished 42nd overall after shooting an 85 on Sunday.

The Golden Flashes’ women’s golf squad also won the ladies’ MAC Championship Tournament last weekend, marking the fifth consecutive year that Kent State swept MAC golf titles. It was also the women’s team’s 15th consecutive MAC Championship.

The conclusion of the MAC Championship Tournament marks the conclusion of the men’s golf play until the start of 2013-14 season.
