MANAKIN-SABOT, Va. – Defending champion UNC Wilmington held off a final-round charge by Wake Forest to capture the 2010 Verizon Wireless VCU Shootout Tuesday at Hermitage Country Club.
Iowa State's Nate McCoy birdied three of his last five holes to catapult past a host of players for a one stroke individual victory. McCoy finished 8-under (69-68-71=208) on the par 72, 6,955-yard Manakin Course. UNC Greensboro's Robert Hoadley placed second at 7-under (71-70-68=209).
Host VCU was 3-over Tuesday and placed 10th, two strokes behind Iowa State and three behind Virginia Tech.

Senior Mark Jargren (Helsingborg, Sweden) was 2-over on Tuesday and placed 23rd, while freshman Matt Ball Jr. (Richmond, Va.) carded a 2-under 70 and finished tied for 37th. After a rough opening round 80 on Monday, Ball shot a combined 1-under in his final two rounds.
