ORLANDO -- The George Washington golf team shot a 1-over 289 on the final day of the 2017 Atlantic 10 Championship to finish in fourth place with a three-day total of 3-under 861 (273-299-289).

Richmond took home the title by running away from the field with a 25-under 839, while VCU was second (11-under 853) and Dayton third (10-under 854). Jack Lang of Davidson took the individual title following rounds of 70, 68 and 68 for a 10-under 206 total.

A pair of Colonials claimed top-10 finishes, as sophomore Logan Lowe improved on last year's 13th-place showing by tying for eighth, and junior Vince Palazzolo recorded the second-best result of his career at 10th place. Both closed with 1-under par 71s on Sunday with Lowe totaling a 4-under 212 (67-74-71) and Palazzolo a 3-under 213 (66-76-71).

Redshirt junior Christian Cichan shot an even-par 72 on Sunday to finish +1 overall (69-76-72=217) and in a tie for 16th, while freshman Yoo Jin Kim tied for 46th (78-75-75=228) and junior Jack Porcelli was 48th (71-74-84=229).

"While we didn't achieve our ultimate goal of winning a conference championship it was still a successful weekend," said head coach Chuck Scheinost. "We're very pleased with how the guys responded and today the putts just weren't falling. If we'd have gotten a few to fall, who knows what happens, but Richmond played a great tournament so hats off to them. There's definitely a lot of positives to build off of for next season."

On a vote by league coaches, Lowe took home All-Atlantic 10 honors for the second straight year after a stellar sophomore season that included five top-10s and one victory. GW's 861 total is its second-best in school history, behind only and 860 in the 2006 A-10 Championship and 2016 Desert Shootout.

 

 

The Colonials are set to return their entire lineup from the A-10 Championship in 2017-18.
