POWELLS POINT, N.C. -- The University of Delaware men’s golf team wrapped up its 2011 fall season this week with a 15th place finish out of 18 teams at the ODU Outer Banks Collegiate Invitational.
The Blue Hens recorded a 306 team score during Tuesday’s third and final round to finish in 15th place at 903.

Conroy was three over par through seven holes during his final round, but birdied 9 and 12 while recording pars on the other nine final holes to finish the day at one over.
Senior Stephen Scialo fired a four over par 76 on Tuesday, tying for 44th place with an eight over par score of 73-75-76-224. After a two over par front nine, Scialo posted three consecutive pars before a birdie on 13 to move to one over for the day. However he bogeyed three of the final five holes to conclude his day at four over.
Fellow senior Greg Matthias recorded a nine over par 81 during his final round and finished in a tie for 65th place at 73-76-81-230, 14 over par.
