EMU's golf men continue to make improvements.

The Royals were at the Ted Keller Memorial in Ashland, Va., on Monday and Tuesday, and for the third straight tournament they beat at least one other ODAC team.

Lucas Miller (San Antonio, Tex./Brandeis) had his break-through round of the fall, carding a 74 on Tuesday. He just missed his career low of 73. Miller finished at 158 (+16) in 29th place out of 55 golfers.

Riley Kingsley (North Newton, Kan./Newton) continued his improved fall, as his 80 on Monday was EMU's second-lowest round of the tournament. The senior came in at 165 (+23) in 38th place.

Chris Fenn (Glen Allen, Va./Glen Allen) carded a pair of 85s to finish at 170 (+28), with Austin Sachs (Dillsburg, Pa./Northern York) right behind him at 171 (+29). Benjamin Shenk (Elkton, Va./Page County) shot an 84 on Monday and finished at 180 (+38).

Freshman Christopher Elliott (Beaver Springs, Pa./Midd-West) played as an individual and tied Sachs at 171 (+29).

As a team, the Royals put up rounds of 328 and 330 to finish in a healthy eighth out of ten teams at 658.

Franklin & Marshall had three of the top four individuals, including medalist Jared Berlin at 144 (+2), to run away with the team title at 583.

The two-day event was played at the par-71 Hanover Country Club.

EMU's men wrap up their fall season next Monday and Tuesday at the VSGA Intercollegiate, played at Sleepy Hole Golf Course in Suffolk, Va.
