From Staff Reports

— Dalton State College men’s golfers Levi Nix and Chase Jones both finished at 1-over-par 217 and tied for 26th at the Skyhawk Classic at Paris Landing State Park in Buchanan, Tenn.

Those were the best individual finishes for the Roadrunners, who shot a 298 on Tuesday in the final round of the 54-hole tournament. Dalton State dropped from sixth place after the second round — the first two rounds were played Monday — and wound up 10th in the 16-team tournament with a total score of 876.

Lee University won the team title with a 840, and the Flames’ Hunter Vest was the top individual, finishing at 12 under.

Third-round scores and tournament totals for Dalton State included Tyler Mitchell (76, 220), Anthony D’Angelo (76, 222) and Thomas Romel (77, 227). The tournament marked the end of the fall schedule for the first-year Roadrunners, who will resume competition with their spring schedule in 2014.
