JACKSON, Tenn.---Behind a final round 70 from senior Geoff Newman, the University of Cincinnati men's golf team jumped two places in the final team standings at the Grover Page Classic. The tournament concluded on Tuesday at the Jackson Country Club.

The Bearcats saved their best performance for the final round of the tournament as the team shot a total of 299 to climb to 12th in the finishing order. Newman's round of 70, along with a 74 from Albert Fernandez were key to Cincinnati's improvement.

Newman paced the Bearcats for the third time this year, finishing tied for 13th with a three-round score of 222. Fernandez finished in the 43rd position with a score of 233. Sophomore Blake Tucker fired a career-low 77 during the second round and finished tied for 54th.

North Alabama was the runaway winner in the team standings, bettering Tennessee Tech by 15 strokes. TTU's Scott Stallings took individual medalist honors, topping North Alabama's Wes Smith in a playoff.

The Bearcats are idle for two weeks until starting a busy stretch with three tournaments in two weeks. UC is next in action at Northern Kentucky's LaRosa's Collegiate Cup on March 17-18 before immediately competing in the Butler Spring Invitational the following two days.
