ORLANDO, Fla. - Senior J.R. Wade carded his third straight even par 72 on Tuesday to finish tied for 15th at the Rio Pinar Intercollegiate. Wade's three round total was 216 on the Rio Pinar Country Club Course.

As a team, the Blue Raiders shot a solid 292 in the third round, but was unable to advance up the leaderboard. Middle Tennessee shot 889 for the tournament to finish 14th in the 15-team field.

"We played a little better the third round, but it was still a very disappointing effort," head coach Johnny Moore said. "We simply did not play as well as we have been the previous two tournaments, but I was pleased with how steady J.R. (Wade) played."

Behind Wade was junior Patrick Williams, who tied for 57th with a 75-77-74=226. Charlie Gibson tied for 60th with a 227 after firing rounds of 73-75-79.

Willie Daniel, who had an up-and-down tournament, tied for 62nd with a 228. Daniel had a 73 and 75 in the first and third rounds, respectively, but had a disappointing 80 in round two. Freshman Carter Henderson completed the scoring by tying for 72nd with a 233. Henderson, who had an 82-80 the first day, came back impressively on Tuesday by registering the best round of the tournament by the Blue Raiders with a 71.

The Blue Raiders will be off the next two weeks before concluding the fall season at the Fall Beach Classic in Gulf Shores, AL, Nov. 5-6.
