Barry captures Saint Edward's Invitational title for first time

AUSTIN, Texas -- In the weather-shortened St. Edward's Invitational, Barry's No. 1-ranked team created history Tuesday.

The Buccaneers won the 36-hole tournament at Grey Rock Golf Club's 6,858-yard, par-72 course, matching a school-record 274 in the second round to beat No. 4 Cal State Monterey Bay by 13 strokes. Barry and CSUMB shared the lead after Monday's first round, but a torrid second round allowed the Bucs to pull away in a landslide win with a 570 36-hole total.

It was Barry's first win at the tournament, and the Bucs third victory in the 2013-14 season -- the first of the spring. Western New Mexico finished third at 589.

Barry sophomore All-American Adam Svensson tied the school career record, winning his fourth tournament of the season. Svensson shot 10-under 69-65 -- 134 to win by eight strokes against Monterey Bay's Carr Vernon. Barry senior Scott Smyers and freshman Mario Beltran finished in a five-way tie for third at 1-over 145. Smyers shot 3-under 69 in the final round, and Beltran put up a 4-under 68.

Svensson's four tournament wins this season is the most ever in a single season by a Buccaneer golfer. He had eight birdies and one bogey in the final round.

Beltran had five birdies in the second round, recovering nicely from an opening-round 5-over 77 to make up a nine-stroke differential in the two rounds. Smyers had five birdies and an eagle in the final round in his best finish of the season in the 16-team, 85-player field.

Barry junior Berry Jole finished tied for 13th after back-to-back 74s. Senior Jared Dalga cut 10 strokes off his first-round total, finishing at even-par in the final round. Dalga sank four birdie putts in the second round.
