ALBANY, GA. - Heavy wind and cold temperatures resulted in less than stellar play Tuesday for the John A. Logan College men's golf team in second-day tournament action in Albany, Ga.

The Volunteers posted a 324 through 18 holes and finished ninth out of 12 teams competing. East Florida Community College won the meet.

The lone JALC player to crack 80 for the day was sophomore Connor Graves with a 79. Sophomore Michael Mencaccy bounced back from a poor outing Monday to record a more respectable 80. Freshman Christian Seaton also checked in with an 80. Sophomore Thomas Simpson of Benton turned in an 85 and Adam Woolley fell back with an 89.

"Most everybody's scores were high today with temps in the 40s and a strong wind," said Vols head coach Tom Ferris. "The guys were frustrated with the way they played. I expected them to do better. They expected to do better. Hopefully, this will be a good learning experience for us as we move forward this spring. At least, we were able to get 54 holes of golf under our belts."

Logan returns to action next Monday and Tuesday at a tournament in Jackson, Tenn. hosted by the University of Tennessee-Martin.
