Sophomore Connor Yakubov was the Eagles' top performer at the Discover DeKalb Emory Spring Invitational.   The 36-hole tourney, was played at the 6,510-yard, par-70 Smoke Rise Country Club in nearby Stone Mountain.

Yakubov landed all-tournament honors after finishing fifth in the 87-player field with an even-par score of 140 (73-67).  His final round score of three-under 67 tied for the program's all-time second-lowest 18-hole effort while his 140 tied for third on school's all-time chart for a 36-hole event. 

Yakubov's effort helped the No. 4-ranked Eagles to a second-place finish out of 15 teams, with Emory finishing off the tournament with a team score of 568 (second lowest mark for a 36-hole tournament in program history), just one shot behind No. 1-ranked Huntingdon College.
