Golf Finishes Sixth at Wildcat Invitational

CRANSTON, RI - The University of Massachusetts Dartmouth men's golf team shot a team score of 329 for a two-day total of 648 and finished sixth at the 15-team Wildcat Spring Invitational hosted by Johnson & Wales at the par-71 Cranston Country Club Sunday.

Rhode Island College finished first, shooting a score of 299 for a total of 618. UMass Dartmouth finished one shot behind Elms.

For the Corsairs, senior Matt Connolly (Lynnfield, MA/Lynnfield HS) shot a 78 for a two-day total of 155,  and is tied for fifth, junior Brendan Kelleher (Hopedale, MA/Hopedale HS) came in at 77 for 157, junior Brandon Oldham (Mattapoisett, MA/Old Rochester Regional HS) shot 86 for 167,  senior Kevin Rewinski (West Springfield, MA/West Springfield HS) shot 88 for 169, and  freshman Sean Griffith (Bourne, MA/Bourne HS) shot 95 for 183.

"We're disappointed, we were in good position going into today, but the island green on the eighth hole really did us, and we couldn't really get back into it," said UMass Dartmouth Head Coach Joel Baptista. "Rhode Island College threw up an outstanding number and played some good golf, and they deserved to win the tournament and the Spring Series Cup. I'm proud of my guys, they've been through a lot this week, and there was no quit in them. We got some good rounds from Brendan and Matt."

The Corsairs will return to action Tuesday at Worcester State's Rich Korzec Memorial Invitational.
