    CHOUDRANT, La. - The University of Houston golf team fired its best round of the tournament Tuesday, but it would not be quite enough as the Cougars settled for a second-place finish at the Louisiana Tech/Squire Creek Intercollegiate Invitational.

    Standing at third place entering Tuesday's final 18 holes on the 7,105-yard, par-72 course at Squire Creek Golf Club, the Cougars posted a team score of 290 and finished the 54-hole event at 18-over-par 882. Texas-Arlington grabbed the team championship at 15-over-par 879.

    Stephen F. Austin State (893), Oral Roberts (897), Rice (897), McNeese State (905), Louisiana-Monroe (907), Sam Houston State (907), North Texas (908) and Southern Miss (909) rounded out the Top 10 leaders.

    It was the third Top Five team finish by the Cougars to date in four fall tournaments.

    Four Cougar linksters finished among the Top 20 individual leaders with a familiar face pacing UH. Sophomore Ricky Romano, a member of the 2004 Conference USA All-Freshmen Team, fired a 72 in the final round and tied for second place with Texas-Arlington's Jeff Murray at even-par 216.

    Romano finished among the Cougars' Top Two individual leaders for the fourth straight tournament to open the 2004 fall season.

    UH sophomore Pablo Acuna tied for sixth place at 3-over-par 219 after shooting a 72 in the final round, and junior captain Zach Mowbray tied for 13th place at 7-over-par 223.

    Playing in his first tournament of the season, junior Kevin Newman tied for 18th place at 8-over-par 223. Freshman Jordan Irwin tied for 44th place with a score of 229.

    Louisiana-Monroe's Casey Russell earned medalist honors after firing a 70 for the second consecutive round and finished at 3-under-par 213.

     

     

    The Cougars return to action on Nov. 4-5 when they compete at the Del Walker Invitational in Long Beach, Calif.
