PETERSBURG, Va. – Senior Connor Jones (Harrisonburg, Va./Spotswood) shot 75 each day to finish first in the individual standings as the Randolph-Macon men's golf team captured the VSU Fall Classic at Dogwood Trace.

Jones' score of 150 was the top among the Division II and Division III players and matched the Division I high of Norman Blanco of Maryland-Eastern Shore.

Jones helped R-MC finish ahead of the other four Division II and III squads as well as the three Division 1 teams.
