The Tigers competed along with BFA-St. Albans and a non-scoring North Country contingent, finishing behind BFA, 198-215, at the Enosburg Country Club.

The other Tiger scores were Shannon Gillett, 53; Owen Hamilton, 54; and Ben Fuller, 69.
OV sent four members of its golf team to the Woodstock Country club to compete with Woodstock, Fair Haven and Mill River golfers on Monday.
