Ross ties for second at even-par 144, Robledo ties for fourth


Senior James Ross led three Cougars among the top seven leaders during the final day of the Reunion Intercollegiate on Tuesday afternoon at Reunion Golf and Country Club in Maddison, Miss.

With rain shortening the tournament to 36 holes and then halting first round play Monday afternoon, Ross finished his opening round with a 72 on Tuesday and followed with another 72 to tie for second overall at even-par 144 on the 7,305-yard course.

Ross overcame a roller-coaster start to his second round that featured three bogeys and a back-to-back birdie through his first six holes. However, Ross rallied to play bogey-free golf with a birdie on the par-5 10th hole during the last 12 holes to post his best finish as a Cougar.

Junior Roman Robledo and senior Curtis Reed joined Ross among the tournament’s top 10 leaders. Robledo finished his first round at 73 and bettered that by one stroke in the afternoon to finish in a tie for fourth at 145. Reed completed his opening round with a 1-under-par 71 and finished in a tie for seventh at 146.

Reed posted his second straight top 10 finish while Robledo had his sixth top-10 finish of the season.

“Those three guys played great,” said director of golf Jonathan Dismuke. “They hung in there and posted solid rounds under some tough conditions.”

As a team, the Cougars finished third with a score of 593. Mississippi State captured the team championship at 588, while No. 15 Vanderbilt finished second at 592. Host Mississippi (596), Western Kentucky (601), Austin Peay State (603), Central Arkansas (604), Southern Miss (606) and Louisiana-Lafayette (606) rounded out the top nine team leaders.
