NASHVILLE, TENN. - The John A. Logan College men's golf team currently stands 11th out of 16 schools with a 36-hole score of 599 at the Tennessee State University Invitational Monday in Nashville. Logan is the only community college competing at the tourney.

Sophomore Connor Graves continues his hot play for the Volunteers. He leads the team with rounds of 76 and 70 or two-over-par at 146. Sophomore teammate, Mike Mencaccy, followed up with a 149 (76, 73).

Sophomore Thomas Simpson of Benton turned in a score of 151 (76, 75). Freshman Adam Woolley was at 154 (76, 78) and freshman Christian Seaton followed at 157 (77, 80).

"We could have played better, but overall, I wasn't disappointed with the effort," said Vols head coach Tom Ferris. "It's a process and we have been making improvement. It was good to get 36 holes in today with 18 more Tuesday."

Ferris praised Graves' play.

"Connor has certainly been our most consistent player so far this spring. And he proved that again today."
