WILMINGTON, N.C. - Sebastian Soderberg and Andrew Dorn each tied for second individually and the Coastal Carolina men's golf team carded rounds of 311 and 301 to place fourth in the 12-team and rain-shortened Seahawk Intercollegiate, played at the par-72, 6,877-yard Country Club of Landfall at the Jack Nicklaus Ocean-Pines Courses.

The event was scheduled for 54 holes, but rain Sunday did not allow for the first round to be completed. After the first round finished Monday morning the teams played an additional 18 holes for a 360hole event.

Host UNC Wilmington won with a two-round total of 604 (295-309), beating runner-up Kent State by one stroke (296-309=605). Maryland placed third with a 609. Coastal Carolina, standing in seventh place after the first round, moved up to fourth with its second-round 301, marking the lowest score in the second round by six strokes despite 20-30 mph winds. Campbell and Davidson tied for fifth with a two-round score of 617.

For Soderberg - ranked 75th in the nation, it marked the second consecutive event the senior has finished runner-up. He shot consecutive rounds of 74 for a 4-over 148. Dorn also shot consecutive 74's and his runner-up finish marks his career-best and his third top 10 finish this season.

Ben Wheeler tied for 28th, shooting 82-75 for a 36-hole total of 157. Peter Valasek finished in a tie for 40th (81-78=159) and Roberto Ballesteros tied for 53rd (85-78=163).
