MOUNT VERNON - The John A. Logan College men's golf team has some work to do today in order to overcome a five-stroke deficit at a tournament hosted by Rend Lake College at Green Hills Country Club in Mount Vernon.

The Volunteers shot an unchacteristic 308, good for fourth place overall. It's one of the worst outings this spring for Logan.

Lewis and Clark College, based in Godfrey, is first at 303. The host Warriors are second at 304 and Kaskaskia is third at 307. Other teams competing at the meet include: Danville, Lincoln Trail, and Vincennes. 

"Obviously, we didn't play very well and the kids know I'm not too happy about it," said Vols head coach Tom Ferris. "We've been up and down all spring. Hopefully, we can bounce back Monday and play more up to our capabilities. We had better get things figured out before the regional next weekend."

Top player for Logan on Day 1 of the two-day invite was freshman Christian Seaton of Mount Carmel, who turned in a score of 74.

Connor Graves followed with a 77. Adam Woolley netted a 78. Thomas Simpson (Benton) was next with a 79 and Mike Mencaccy finished with an 80.

Competing as individuals were Brock Bolton and Trey Brinker, who each shot a 76.

Action resumes at 9 today.
