Junior Steven Fisk finished tied for first place overall and senior Archer Price tied for fourth at the Fighting Irish Classic, powering the Eagles to a second-place finish out of 13 teams in South Bend, Indiana in their second tournament appearance of the fall.

Fisk shot 6-under-par for the two-day, three-round event, including a 4-under-par 66 and a 3-under-par 67 in the first and third rounds, respectively.

Price improved with every round, starting with an even 70 and notching a 69 and a 67 in the final two rounds.

The host, Notre Dame, managed to fend off the Eagles on the final day and win the tournament by six strokes, though the Eagles outshot the Irish by seven strokes, 273 to 280, in the final round. The Irish finished at 18-under-par as a team overall, while GS finished at 12-under-par, 11 strokes better than third-place Oakland University.

GS senior Jake Storey finished tied for 12th place individually after following up a team-leading 65 in round one with two solid, albeit less spectacular rounds.

Sophomores Brett Barron and Luukas Alakulppi both tied for 34th, as Barron shot a 3-under-par 67 on the final 18 holes to shoot 22 spots up the leaderboard.

Fisk finished last spring as the No. 105 ranked golfer in the nation, according to Alongside him, a host of talented Eagles including Fisk, Price and Storey make them a force to be reckoned with at any event in which they compete.

The next event for the Eagles will be the AutoTrader Collegiate Classic in Duluth, Georgia hosted by Georgia State. The event will feature big-name schools like Mississippi State and the University of Kansas.
