Sophomore Emmet Herb capped off a strong weekend of golf with a second-place individual showing and lead the No. 4-ranked Tommies to a team victory at the two-day, 36-hole St. John's tournament.
Just seven shots separated the first four teams after Sunday. UST had a steady round as Herb shot 71 and Pete Sienko had the tournament's low round of 70. Herb finished one stroke out of the medalist honor at 74-71/145. Sienko (76-70/146) tied for third, two shots behind the winner.
Herb also finished first in Friday's St. John's vs. St. Thomas dual meet. His 68 was the low scorer among 22 players.
The Tommies shot 297-298/595 and topped St. John's by four; beat UW-Eau Claire by five; and topped Gustavus by 14.
The Toms will play in the 36-hole Gustavus Bobby Krieg tourney next weekend, their final tuneup before the May NCAA Championships.
St. Thomas sits in first place among seven schools by one shot after shooting 297 Sunday in the first of two rounds at the St. John's tournament. The final 18 holes will be played on Monday, and just seven shots separate the first four teams.
UW-Eau Claire is one shot back at 298, and the host Johnnies are two strokes back at 299. Gustavus is fourth at 304.
