POWELLS POINT, N.C. -- The James Madison men's golf squad dropped one spot in the last round to finish eighth at the 2010 ODU-Outerbanks Men's Golf Classic sponsored by Pepsi, Oct. 24-26. The three-day, 54-hole event was played at the Kilmarlic Golf Club (Par 72 - 6,559 yards) in Powells Point, N.C.

The Dukes shot a 5-over 293 in their last 18 to finish at 10-over 874 in eighth. East Carolina shot 13-under 275 in the final round and ran away with the team title with a 23-shot victory with a 37-under 827. Richmond was second at 14-under 850, with Liberty in third at 8-under 856. Louisville placed fourth at 6-under 858, while Radford rounded out the top five at 1-over 865.

"We played fair this week," Head Coach Jeff Forbes said. "We just had a couple of holes just killed us."

Junior Chad Mozingo (Culpeper, Va./Culpeper County) was the top finisher for Madison at 1-over 217, good for a tie for 22nd. Sophomore Ryan Vince (Charlotte, N.C./Providence) shot the low round of the day for JMU with an even-par 72 and moved up to a tie for 26th at 2-over 218. Sophomore Rich Leeper (Chapel Hill, N.C./Carrboro) was next at 5-over 221, tying for 37th with junior teammate Mike Smith (Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla./Nease). Senior Matt Neely (Ashland, Va./Patrick Henry) tied for 76th at 16-over 230. Harold Varner of East Carolina shot his second 7-under 65 of the tournament to take home medalist honors with a 20-under 196, winning by nine shots over Furman's Matthew Broome at 11-under 205.

The tournament completed the fall action for the Dukes, as they will be back in action Mon.-Tue., Jan. 31-Feb. 1 at the Jacksonville University Invitational. The two-day tournament will be played at the PLAYERS Stadium Course in Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla.
