Jacksonville State (861) held on to win the championship by one shot over Austin Peay (862), becoming the first and only OVC team to beat the Govs this season.

Things looked promising when the Govs opened the tournament with a 280 to take an early eight-shot lead. However, a second-round 295 allowed JSU to move out front for the final round. The Govs finished with a one-under par 287, but it wasn’t enough for a title.

Bradley, who was a second-team All-OVC selection as voted on by the league’s coaches, shot 66-71-73 for a six-under par 210 to win the individual championship by three shots. Bradley’s round took a late hit when a wayward tee shot on No. 18 went out of bounds, leading to a double-bogey finish.

With the win, the sophomore from England earns the OVC’s automatic bid to play in the NCAA Regionals as an individual.
