Sophomore Brad Wright (Cambridge, Ohio/Cambridge HS) helped the University of Akron men's golf team win the MAC/Big East Challenge at the Orange County National golf course in Orlando, Fla. Wright posted a team-low round of 69 in the final round en route to earning a third-place finish and his third top-10 performance of the season. He shot rounds of 73 and 70 on day one of the tournament to finish four-under par on the weekend with 212 total strokes.

 

Akron bested 11 other teams in the event, finishing two strokes above the host school, Marquette, with 863 (294-282-287) total tallies over the three-round event. The win is the second of the season for the Zips, but marks only the third tournament victory since 1997.
