Wade Finishes Tied for 15thOctober 23, 2001 · MT Media Relations
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."
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.
