Florida State University sophomore Alan Beers carded a two-over par 74 to move up six positions in the individual standings and lead the Florida State men’s golf team as play in the Country Club of Louisiana Intercollegiate concluded Tuesday. Beers finished the event in a tie for 55th-place while teammate Eric Beaty finished in a tie for 51st-place after firing a four-over par 76 in the final round.

Beers (Midlothian, Va.) and Beaty (Germantown, Tenn.) finished the event within one stroke of each other in the individual standings. Both players carded two rounds of 74 and Beaty claimed medallist honors among the Seminoles with a 76 in the third round. He defeated Beers, who shot a 77 in Monday’s second round, by one stoke.

Junior Matt Ackley (Lake Mary, Fla.) played his best golf of the tournament as he carded a three-over par 75 in the third round. His play improved throughout the event as he went from an 81 in round one to a 79 in round two to his final round 75. Ackley carded scores of 75 or under in four of his nine rounds this fall.

Alabama-Birmingham won the event in thrilling fashion. The Blazers moved past Mississippi on the final hole of the event when the Rebels dropped four strokes to par the hole and drop to third place in the final standings. Graeme McDowell won the event with a three round score of 204.

The CCLA was the final event of the fall season for the Seminoles. Florida State begins play in the spring season as it travels to play in the Gator Invitational, Feb. 9-10.
