Lee finished with an 836 total and Carson-Newman, who shot the best round of 277 in the final round, could only trim one shot off of Lee’s overnight lead.  Catawba had a 295 score on Tuesday and finished with a 909 total.

Freshman Trey Burton (Hickory, N.C./Newton-Conover HS) shot a two-under-par 70 on Tuesday and led Catawba with his 53rd place finish and a three-round total of 223.  Jeb Bennett (Lexington, S.C./River Bluff HS) and Jordan Taylor (Troy, N.C./W. Montgomery HS/Campbell) tied for 68th with scores of 228.  Taylor shot even-par 72 on Tuesday.  Andrew Hall, of Carson-Newman, took medalist honors as he shot a 14-under-par total of 202 and won by four shots.
