McKINNEY, Texas-The Oral Roberts men’s golf team made yet another charge up the leader board bringing home a runner-up finish from the 2013 Jim West Intercollegiate, hosted by Texas State at TPC Craig Ranch. ORU (301-297-294, 892) finished seven shots back of No. 36 Vanderbilt who won the team championship (294-299-292, 885).

ORU finished ahead of other Southland Conference schools Stephen F. Austin and McNeese State who were also in the 11-team field.

With a season-best 218 (74-72-72), Spencer Sheets led ORU and finished fifth overall. It is the first top-5 finish of his career, and topped his previous best finish of 31st.

Jake Spencer shot 74 in the final round to finish the tournament at 224 (73-77-74), tying for 16th overall. Scott Newell (77-72-79) and Trevor McInroe (78-79-71), who had the best round of the tournament for ORU on Tuesday, both tied for 24th at 228.

Shannon Allen’s 230 (77-76-77) put him in a tie for 32nd to round out the ORU competitors.

After a tough stretch of four tournaments in four weeks, ORU will have a week off before heading back to McKinney, Texas, for the 2013 Southland Conference Championship, April 22-24.
