Wade, Blue Raiders Finish SeventhNovember 6, 2001 · MT Media Relations
As a team, the Blue Raiders finished in seventh place in the 12-team tournament with a score of 293-287-290=870. SBC foe Arkansas State won the event with an 844.
"I thought we would have played better as a team in the final round," head coach Johnny Moore said. "We made some real mental mistakes on the course today, which came back to hurt us. I was extremely proud of the way J.R. (Wade) played. I also saw some good things out of freshman Carter Henderson."
Wade wasn't the only Blue Raider impressing in the final round. Senior John Beddies came back after two disappointing rounds to fire a season best 69 to finish tied for 33rd. Freshman Carter Henderson also tied for 33rd with a 221.
The Fall Beach Classic concludes the fall portion of the schedule for Middle Tennessee. The team will begin the spring season on Feb. 11 at the Mississippi Gulf Coast Classic.
