Lakeland, Fla. – Lynn University’s 10th-ranked men’s golf team finished third out of 15 teams at the 32nd Annual Matlock Collegiate Championship. Roberto Francioni was outstanding on the final day, shooting a four-under par 68 to finish eighth individually while Jose Andres Miranda logged his first career top-10 finish.
A senior from Zurich, Switzerland, Francioni tied with teammates Daniel Young and Miranda for seventh in the field in par 4 scoring, shooting two-under par while also matching Miranda in total birdies with 12. The 214 ties his lowest total as a member of the Fighting Knights and is four shots off his previous low 54-hole score.
