Sandestin, F.l— Despite Anthony Dillisio's '13 final round 67, the Skidmore College golf team finished 11th in the Golfweek Division III Fall Invitational being played at the par-71 Raven Golf Club at Sandestin Golf & Beach Resort.
The Thoroughbreds shot 307-308-295--910. Guilford led from start-to-finish, winning with 290-296-288--874. The tournament featured 18 of the nation's top NCAA Division III schools.
Texas Tyler (291-304-288-883) and Illinois Wesleyan (298-297-288--883) tied for second. Oglethorpe (303-305-278--886) and Rhodes College (296-313—292--901) round out the top five.
Guilford's Noah Ratner also lead the entire way, shooting a 9-under-par 66-69-69--204. Dillisio moved to fifth with his final-round 67, finishing 3-over with 74-75-67—216. He had seven birdies, including two on par-threes.
"Anthony continues to improve and impress," Skidmore coach Josh Cupp said. " He treaded water the first couple days and scored adequately in adverse conditions. When the conditions improved he seized the opportunity and went low. A top-5 finish in an event this strong is quite an accomplishment."
