Mill Creek's Newsome posts high finish

Mill Creek grad Emerson Newsome placed second at the recent Choo Choo Invitational golf tournament in Chattanooga, Tenn.

Newsome, a sophomore on Cincinnati’s golf team, shot 2-under-par 69 in the final round, moving up from a fifth-place tie into second place by himself. An eagle on No. 13 and a birdie on No. 14 helped his charge. He shot 73 and 70 in the tourney’s first two rounds.

As a Cincy freshman, Newsome played in every tournament and posted a 75.18 stroke average with three top-20 finishes, including a 17th-place showing at the Big East Conference Championships.
