MEADVILLE, Pa. -- The Point Park University men's golf team shot another team score of 308 in the final round Monday to place in a tie for sixth of 17 teams at the Guy W. Kuhn Allegheny Invitational. Point Park shot 308 both days at The Country Club of Meadville.

Point Park's two-day total of 616 tied St. Vincent for sixth place and was 13 shots behind tournament winner Carnegie Mellon, which shot 300-303 for a 36-hole score of 603. Rochester was second at 606, followed by Allegheny at 607, Kenyon at 610 and Washington & Jefferson at 615.

Junior Collin Holmes, from Avon Lake, Ohio, was the top performer for Point Park for the second time in as many tournaments. He shot 78-76 to tie for 20th at 10-over 154.

Kevin Loutsenhizer and Chris Bowen each shot 77 on Monday. Loutsenhizer had a tournament total of 155, and Bowen came in at 157.

James Daley shot 78 both days for a 36-hole score of 156. Eric Poplowski dropped back to an 85 on Monday after an opening-round 74, the best round of any Point Park player on the weekend.

The individual medalist was Colin Izzo of Washington & Jefferson, who finised at 2-over 146.

Point Park coach Gabe Bubon said the Pioneers are lacking mental toughness after finishing fifth at Clarion and tied for sixth at Allegheny.

"This year's team lacks mental toughness," Bubon said. "The good thing is it's still early in the season."

Point Park is off until Oct. 7-8 when it visits the Robert Morris Invitational. It will be the second time that the Pioneers enter the NCAA Division I tournament in the last three years.
