JEKYLL ISLAND, Ga.- The St. Andrews University men's and women's Golf teams competed in their opening tournament of the season on Monday before inclement weather canceled the second day of the Coastal Georgia Fall Invitational.

The men were led by Stella who shot rounds of 71 and 72 on Monday to place 7th with a score of 143, the highest score from an AAC school and just six shots behind the winner, from Lindsey Wilson.
