POWELL'S POINT, N.C. – Christian Chapman finished in red figures with a 2-under 54-hole total of 211 to pace the St. Bonaventure golf team in its final competition of the fall season as part of the Old Dominion Invitational at Kilmarlic Golf Club.

As a team, the Bonnies put together scores that would ordinarily be seen as competitive – 296-294-293/883, but scores were tremendously low across the board for the tournament. As a result, the Bonnies finished 14th in the 15-team field paced by North Dakota State's 26-under total of 826. Host Old Dominion was second (830) and Georgetown third (838).

Chapman shined throughout the tournament, opening with a 2-under 69 in the opening round of 36 holes Monday. He closed the long afternoon with a 73, but bounced back nicely with another round of 69 on Tuesday to finish in a tie for 16th out of 78 competitors.

His 211 score for the week will stand in a tie for the fourth-lowest 54-hole total in program history and best by a Bonnies player since Brent Morgan matched that score at the Kingsmill Intercollegiate two seasons ago.

Danny Gianniny (74-70-78/222) was second on the team while Nolan Ditcher (77-76-73/226) was third. Lance Sininger (79-75-73/227) and Zach Chaddock (76-76-80/232) also were in the Bona lineup.
