April 17, 2010

CRANSTON, RI-The University of Massachusetts Dartmouth's men's golf team shot a team score of 327 and is tied for fifth place in a 15-team field after the first day of action at the Wildcat Invitational at the Cranston Country Club.

The Corsairs' are tied with host Johnson & Wales. New York University shot 303 and is in first place.

Sophomore Nick Jagoe (Westport, MA/Westport HS) shot a 78 and is tied for ninth, freshman Conor O'Malley (Holliston, MA/Holliston HS) shot an 82 and is tied for 27th, sophomore Matt Connolly (Lynnfield, MA/Lynnfield HS) shot an 83 and is tied for 30th, junior Scott Woodacre (Westborough, MA/Westborough HS) shot an84 and is tied for 37th, and junior Matt Brown (Stoneham, MA/Stoneham HS) shot a 90 and is tied for 65th.

"Nick had a good round today," said UMass Dartmouth Head Coach Joel Baptista. "He played solidly, tee to green, and had a couple of hiccups towards the end. We left some shots out on the golf course, and we need to try to continue to execute better, and pay attention to course management, so that we can lower our team score. Our goal is always to play better on the second day, and to hopefully put together some good scores tomorrow."

The tournament will conclude Sunday.
