Knights land outside of top 10 at Isleworth
UCF hosted six top-10 teams at the Isleworth Invitational, and the field lived up to its lofty ranking.
The Knights finished 11th out of 15 teams. The bright spot for the team came in junior Greg Eason, who finished sixth individually.
"It's nice, I'll tell you, to see some hard work paying off," Eason said in a release. "It would've been nice to make a couple of shots less, but hopefully I'll get it better for the next event."
The team’s final event of the fall, the Stetson/CFSC Invitational, will be held Nov. 5-6.

Monifa Sealy led the team with a three-round total of 6-over-par.
