Seniors Carter Knox (Hinesburg, Vt.) and Christopher Billings (Portland, Maine) led the way for the Gulls this weekend as both finished with top 10 showings. Knox finished in a four-way tie for second overall after carding rounds of 74 and 75, to finish +5 with a score of 149. Billings finished one stroke back in a four-way tie for sixth in the 63 man field. Playing his home course, the Maine native shot identical rounds of 75 to finish +6 with a two-day final of 150.
