Recording his first top-five finish for App State, Colin Browning tied for fourth place with a 1-under tournament total of 215 at the Georgia State Invitational, and Lukas Jönsson tied for 14th place.

The highlight of the 54-hole event was a 5-under 67 in the second round from Browning, who tied his best App State round by making six birdies and one eagle on Monday afternoon. He began Round 2 on the back nine and made the turn with a 5-under 31 thanks to three birdies and an eagle on the par-five 15th hole.

Browning led the field by shooting 8 under and averaging 4.33 strokes on the par-five holes this week.

App State used a team round of 285 in Round 2 to climb five spots to fifth in the 16-team field, and the Mountaineers ended up placing 10th overall at 26 over (299-285-306—890). Tennessee Tech and James Madison tied for first with 3-over totals.

Jönsson had a 2-under 70 with one eagle and one birdie in the second round. Addison Beam came in next for the Mountaineers, with a second-round 73 serving as his best score of the week.

True freshman Herman Huus and Aidan Browning rounded out the lineup.

Medalist honors went to Tennessee Tech’s Jackson Skeen, who finished at 8 under (71-70-67—208) to win by two strokes.
