MIDDLEBURY, Vt. – On a low scoring day at the 2019 NESCAC Men's Golf Championship, the Tufts University Jumbos finished the tournament fourth out of four teams on Sunday at Middlebury College's Ralph Myhre Golf Course.

Tufts started the day down 10 strokes after Saturday's round was limited to nine holes due to rain and they scored 149. The Jumbos could not make up the difference as all four teams shot well on Sunday.

The Jumbos had 74s from sophomores Alex Honigford and Henry Hughes on Sunday, along with a 79 by senior co-captain Justin Feldman and 81s by both sophomore Harry Theodore and junior Brandon Karr.

Tufts' 308 today, added to their nine-hole four-best of 159 on Saturday, gave them a 467 final tournament score. They finished well behind third-place Middlebury College (145-294-439).

Trinity College, third after Saturday's round, shot a remarkable 281 team score on Sunday to finish at 430 over the 27 holes to win the conference tournament and receive the automatic berth into the NCAA's. Hamilton College was the runner-up with a fantastic 290 on Sunday added to a 144 on Saturday for a 27-hole 434.

Will Rosenfield from Trinity led for medalist honors after one day with a 34 and shot two-under 69 today to win with a 103 total. Hamilton's Sam Vogel was second at 36-70-106.

Honigford was Tufts' low scorer with a 113, tying for 16th place. A total of 24 golfers played in the tournament.

This was the last event of the 2018-19 season for the Jumbos.
