Jon Henson, Rex Schalch, and Rus Whalen each shot two-under-par 142 for the 36-hole tournament to finish tied for the runner up spot.

    The Georgetown College camp saw the Breds take four teams. They took a varsity “A” team and “B” team, a freshman team and an eighth grade squad to compete against multiple opponents.
