Despite posting its lowest team score of the tournament, Appalachian State University men’s golf was unable to climb up the leaderboard, remaining in 16th-place after the final round of the Irish Creek Intercollegiate Sunday afternoon at the Club at Irish Creek.

The Mountaineers posted a final round score of 293 (+9) to go with their 603 from the previous two rounds to finish with an 896 (+44) for the two-day event. The Apps were a shot away from tying Notre Dame for 15th-place and 37 strokes behind tournament champion, North Carolina, who capture the Intercollegiate with a wire-to-wire win.
On the day, freshman Lee Mitchell led the Mountaineers with a 1-over 72, but junior Casey Komline paced Appalachian for the tournament, scoring a 75-72-75=222 (+9) and tying for 35th place. Mitchell found himself second in the lineup, overall, as he finished with an 80-74-72=226 (+13) and tying for 62nd.
Closely following Mitchell was fellow freshman Caleb Keck, who fired his lowest round of the tournament on Sunday and turned in a 76-78-73=227 (+14). The freshman ended his three rounds tied for 64th. Senior Josh Nichols and graduate student Daniel Walsh rounded out the Appalachian lineup, as Nichols (+15) finished tied for 68th, while Walsh (+16) tied for 74th.
The Apps return to the links for their final tournament before the Southern Conference Championships, as they take part in the Coca-Cola Wofford Invitational on April 15-17 at the Country Club of Spartanburg.
