WILLIAMSBURG, Va. - Playing in chilly temperatures with rain and wind, the Army golf team finished 21st at the C&F Bank Intercollegiate at the Kingsmill Golf Resort.
The Black Knights, playing in their second event of the spring season, shot a second round 322 to finish at 632 in the 22-team field.

Eric Park came in with an 82 for the round and a 159 for the championship with James Raymond tied for 105th with a 161 and William Park tied for 112th with a 164.
"It was cold and windy and worth a few strokes," said interim head coach golf Lt. Col. Rob Kewley. "We also have some guys who are trying to find their swings coming out of the winter, too."
The Black Knights will continue their busy spring season this weekend at the Towson Spring Invitational, Saturday and Sunday in Grasonville, Md.
"We need to be competing; we need to be on the golf course," said Kewley. "After this next tournament we will get a well-deserved day off but right now we need to be playing in tournaments."
