Williams, a sophomore from Toronto, submitted a fall season-best and took top individual honors with a 210 (73-67-70) score at the Stetson/CFSC Invitational. Williams’ second round score of five-under, 67, matched the low 18-hole score for the tournament. The Eagles set a tournament record 851 (283-281-287) and took first place out of nine teams.
