Arkansas Wins Big at Seminole Intercollegiate

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - Freshman Sebastian Cappelen tied for individual medalist honors in leading the University of Arkansas men's golf team to its second team title in as many tournaments on Sunday afternoon at the Seminole Intercollegiate at the Southwood Golf Club in Tallahassee, Fla.

Cappelen finished at five-under par for the three-day tournament including a round of two under on the final day. The Razorbacks walked away from the course with a team score of eight-under par, their fourth sub-par score in eight tournaments this year, and with a three stroke victory over Kennesaw State. Tournament host Florida State finished third at three-under and North Texas was two under.

"I am really proud of what the guys did today," Arkansas head coach Brad McMakin said. "We had a phenomenal first day and even though we didn't play our best on day two, the guys came out focused today and shot one of the better rounds. I am very happy for Sebastian who has been close in a couple of tournaments, but wasn't quite able to get over the hump. He was solid all weekend and never took a shot when he wasn't even or below par. Ethan (Tracy) was also very good and was only two strokes behind the leaders."

The win for the Razorbacks is their third of the season, the most by an Arkansas team since the 2002-03 campaign when Arkansas won three of four tournaments to open the spring. That year, the Razorbacks went on to the NCAA Championships and finished 27th.
