Austin Sachs (Dillsburg, Pa./Northern York) led the way as EMU's golf men tied their program low round on a par-72 course Tuesday at the Tom Kinder Memorial. The Royals shot a 318 as a team on the tournament's final day, tying a mark set two years ago on the same Lakeview Golf Course.

Sachs made the biggest jump of any individual in the 66-man field, moving up 12 spots on Tuesday with a career best 74 (+2). The senior's previous low round was a 77. Sachs finished at 158 (+14) in 36th place.

Benjamin Shenk (Elkton, Va./Page County) took off three strokes to a 79 on the final day. He came in at 161 (+17).

Riley Kingsley (North Newton, Kan./Newton) was consistent with his 163 (+19) and freshman Christopher Elliott (Beaver Spring, Pa./Midd-West) made his presence felt on the scoring team at 165 (+21) in his first collegiate tournament. Lucas Miller (San Antonio, Tex./Brandeis) added a 172 (+28).

As a team, Eastern Mennonite took off 11 strokes on Tuesday, coming in ninth overall at 647 (+71).

Two weeks ago, the Royals broke their overall low round with a 311 (+31) on a par-70 course at the Greene Turtle Invitational.

The men have another two-week break before the Ted Keller Memorial at Hanover Country Club in Ashland, Va., on Oct. 8-9.
