Oct. 21, 2008
The participants had to compete with delays due to frost on the course during the tournament. During the final round on Tuesday the golfers had to contend with strong winds that significantly effected scores. The tournament was shortened from 54 holes to 36 holes because of the weather.

William and Mary senior Doug Hurson from Bethesda, Md. shot an impressive one-over 143 and edged out Crist by one shot, two-over 144. Richmond junior Robert Lindstrom was right behind with a three-over 145.
