WORCESTER, MA-The University of Massachusetts Dartmouth men's golf team finished 11th of 15 teams at the Worcester State Invitational at the Sterling Country Club Tuesday.
The Corsairs shot a team score of 336, placing them two strokes behind Springfield and seven shots ahead of Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts. Salem State was first at 298, Nichols shot 304, Trinity(CT) came in at 310, Bentley and host Worcester State tied at 318, Amherst shot 324, Brandeis and Franklin Pierce each came in at 326, and Rhode Island College scored 331. Following MCLA were Westfield State at 346, Western New England at 351 and Becker at 390.
For UMass Dartmouth, freshman Nick Jagoe (Westport, MA/Westport HS) shot a 77 and tied for 12th, senior Rob Leaver (Lakeville, MA/Apponequet HS) shot 85 and tied for 45th, sophomore Dan DeSantis (Pembroke, MA/Pembroke HS) and freshman Mike Anderson (Berkley, MA/Somerset HS) each shot 87 and tied for 50th, and freshman Michael Clarke (Quincy, MA/Archbishop Williams HS) shot an 88 and tied for 55th.
"Nick Jagoe did a good job leading us," said UMass Dartmouth Head Coach Joel Baptista. "He has played great this spring, and if he improves his putting, his scores will be real low. He played with some of the best Division III Players in the area today and held his own. It was also good to get some of our other people some playing time and give them a feel for competition and what it is like. We will finish up Saturday and hope to end the spring on a positive note."
The Corsairs will return to action at the Jack Barry Invitational Saturday.
