GLEN ALLEN, Va. -- Hampden-Sydney College's B Golf Team posted a score of 307 on Sunday for a 36-hole score of 616 (309-307) to finish fifth among 12 teams at the Ted Keller Memorial Tournament at the Dominion Golf Club in Glen Allen.  Freshman Alex Rubino/Charlotte, N.C. fired a one-under par 71 in the final round for a two-day score of 146 (75-71) to lead the Tigers and tie for first individually among the 63 golfers for his second tournament win in five days.

Rubino posted three birdies, including a 30-foot putt on the 18th hole to force a playoff for medalist, adding 13 pars on the par 72, 6,870-yard layout.  He and Ahmad Reedus of NCAA Division II Virginia Union University each finished at 146 and went to a playoff on the ninth hole (par 3, 171 yards).  Both golfers had pars the first time through in the playoff; however, Reedus earned tournament medalist honors with a par the second time playing the same hole, while Rubino bogeyed it.
