TEXARKANA, Ark. -- Old Dominion men's golfer Nick Rencis placed fifth in stroke play at the 2017 C-USA Championships at the Texarkana Country Club Monday. ODU placed 12th as a team. 

Rencis (+2) fired a 2-over 74 in round two and a 72 in the final round of stroke play Monday to finish in sole possession of fifth place. The sophomore Monarch finished two strokes ahead of No. 97 nationally-ranked Frederik Dreier of UTEP. 

With his top-five finish, Rencis was named to the 2017 C-USA All-Tournament Team.
