A top five finish from sophomore Calum Hill led the Warhawks to a sixth-place finish at The Sam Hill Intercollegiate last week.

The team had a solid finish in a field that included teams such as Mississippi State, Louisiana Tech and conference foe South Alabama. ULM finished three over par in the two days.

Calum Hill expressed his feelings of where the team finished.

“It was nice to beat some good teams. I think we beat Mississippi State and South Alabama, so, nice to get one up on them,” Hill said

 Southern Louisiana ran away with the tournament with 16 strokes below par. 

ULM got a good feel of its competition in the Sun Belt. Four teams from the conference were there.

Mason Seaborn also made waves on the last day of the tournament. The senior set a program record, shooting seven strokes under par during the final round.

Coach Walt Williams said he was pleased with his team’s performance.

“Mason set a new school scoring record. Calum had a top five finish. Not much to complain about this week,” Williams said.

The team will now have to wait until Sept. 29 to play in the Cardinal Intercollegiate hosted by Louisville in Simpsonvile, Kentucky.
