MUSCLE SHOALS, Ala.-Louisiana’s Ragin’ Cajuns men’s golf team faltered in the
final round of the Sun Belt Conference Championship and dropped to fifth
place for the tournament.  Despite the final round, senior Michael Smith
(Lafayette, La.) was voted All-Sun Belt by the league coaches. 

The Cajuns golfers turned in a team score of 294 (?6) in the final round of
competition to drop from second place to fifth place.

Denver, who claimed the second round lead, held on to win the tournament by
one stroke over second place New Orleans.  UNO and Western Kentucky both
turned in eight under par performances to leap over the Cajuns.  The
Privateers finished second while the Hilltoppers finished in fourth place,
one stroke behind South Alabama.  The Jaguars turned in a four under par team
score to pass UL in the final round.

Leading the way for Louisiana was Devin Carrey (South Surrey, British
Columbia, Canada).  The junior turned in a four over par round of 76 to
finish the tournament at three under par.  His sub-par performance was good
enough for a tie for 10th place. 

Kyle Pritchard (San Antonio, Texas) finished the tournament at one under par
for a 14th place finish.  Pritchard had a round of one over par, 73, in the
finale for an overall score of 215. 

Senior Morgan Landry (Lafayette, La.) saved his best round for last.  He
carded a two-under par round of 70 to jump into a tie for 26th.  The sub-par
round marked the first time in his four-year career that he turned in a round
below par in the conference championship. 

Rounding out the scoring for the Cajuns was Smith and Dustin Petit (Luling,
La.).  Smith turned in his second consecutive round of 75 to finish the
tournament at five over par in a tie for 29th.  Petit finished the tournament
with a round of 77 to close out the championship with 38th place finish.
