College sports notebook



The Enquirer and wire reports

For the second time in three years and the third time overall, the Xavier men's golf team has won the Atlantic 10 Championship.

The Musketeers shot a 4-over 288 during Sunday's final round to erase an eight-stroke deficit and win the tournament by seven shots over second place Saint Joseph's. XU shot a three-round 895 total on the NCR Country Club Course in Kettering, Ohio. Freshman Andy Pope led the Musketeers and finished the runner-up for medalist honors, falling one stroke off the lead with a three-round total of 216.

MIAMI 2ND IN MAC: Miami junior Mark Weghorst won medalist honors at the Mid-American Conference Championships at Rich Harvest Farms Golf Course in Sugar Grove, Ill. MU's Eric Phipps finished second, and the RedHawks finished second to Kent State for the team title.

CANES EXPLORE MOVE: Miami is exploring the possibility of moving from the Big East to the Atlantic Coast Conference, athletic director Paul Dee confirmed.

If the ACC lured Miami, the conference likely would expand from nine to 12 schools and host a conference football championship, much like the Big 12 and the Southeastern conferences.

Boston College and Syracuse are reportedly the leading candidates to join Miami.
