Men’s Golf Advances To National Championships

May 17, 2014

RALEIGH, N.C. –For the fourth time in five years, the No. 17 Florida State men’s golf team advanced to the NCAA Championships after finishing in fifth place at the NCAA Raleigh Regional. The Seminoles finished the tournament with an 8-over 860 on the par-71 Lonnie Poole Golf Course at NC State.

“We talk about finding a way to score when you don’t have things going as planned,” said head coach Trey Jones. “These guys stepped up on the last hole and hit five perfect drives and five perfect iron shots on the toughest hole on the course. This is a great experience for our young team that will only help us in the future. To qualify without Jack (Maguire) playing well is a tribute to each player.”

Freshman Cristobal Del Solar had his third top ten finish of the season as he placed tied for ninth. Del Solar led the team Saturday with an even par 71 to finish the tournament with a 1-under 212.

Sophomore Hank Lebioda posted a 73 in the third round to finish the tournament with a 2-over 215 to finish tied for 20th. Freshman Jack Maguire shot a 75 Saturday to finish the regional tied for 25th with a 3-over 216.

Senior Joaquin Lolas posted a 4-over 75 to close out the tournament and finished tied for 36th with a 219. Sophomore Rowin Caron finished tied for 49th with a 223.

The NCAA Championship finals begin next Friday at the Prairie Dunes Country Club in Hutchinson, Kansas. The top eight teams in stroke play competition will advance to the match play bracket which begins Tuesday, May 27.
