Blue Raiders Finish Fourth; Wade Named All-ConferenceApril 25, 2001 · MT Media Relations
The Blue Raiders were 15 shots behind winner Arkansas-Little Rock, but only three shots separated them from second place Louisiana-Lafayette.
"We were having another solid day until we reached the back-nine," head coach Johnny Moore said. "We just made some poor decisions the last nine holes and it cost us probably at least a second place finish. But I am proud of these guys for the way they came down here and competed."
Junior J.R. Wade continued his solid play with a one-over par 73 to register a three-day total of 220, which was good enough for a tie for sixth place overall. Wade, an all-OVC performer in 2000, earned all-SBC honors this season by finishing in the top six.
Sophomore Patrick Williams, who had a 222 total, fired an even par 72 on Wednesday to tie for 13th. Dane Randle was alone in 24th with a 227, while John Beddies and Hunter Ingram registered a pair of 231s for a tie for 31st. Beddies, who shot a 73 in the second round, was two-under par on the front nine Wednesday before finding trouble on the back side and shooting nine over par for a 79.
