Brian Langley came up just short of his first collegiate victory but finished off the best performance of his college career, finishing second to lead the USC Beaufort men's golf team to a seventh-place finish Tuesday at the Coastal Georgia Invitational in Sea Island, Ga.

After firing two rounds of 2-under-par 70 on Monday at Sea Island Club's Retreat Course, Langley shot 76 in Tuesday's final round to finish at even-par 216, two shots behind Coastal Georgia's Dylan Freeman.

The Sand Sharks finished seventh with a team total of 913, ahead of the other three Sun Conference teams in the field. Lee (Tenn.) won the title with a score of 884, three shots ahead of Coastal Georgia.

Junior Owen Bell was the next Sand Shark on the leaderboard, tying for 35th at 233, followed by sophomore Ryan Clancy in a tie for 48th at 236. Senior Travis Cashion and freshman Cory Cottrell, who played as an individual, tied for 60th at 239, and freshman Andrew McCullough tied for 63rd at 240.

Next up for the Sand Sharks is the Thomas University Fall Invitational on Oct. 1-2 at Kinderlou Forest Golf Club in Valdosta, Ga.
