North Florida (586), Auburn (587), Georgia State (588) and Ole Miss (594)

round out the top five teams of the tournament to insure tight competition

with scores of 70-69-139, Auburn's Roland Thatcher and Georgia State's Jack

Croyle hold a tie for second after posting marks of 142, to round out the
