The Corsair Blue team finished second with a team score of 327, while the UMass Dartmouth Gold team was fourth at 337.

Salem State finished first with a team score of 316, Worcester State was third at 331, Johnson & Wales was fifth at 338, and Wentworth was sixth at 418. Matt Sebet of Salem State was the medalist with a three over par 75.

"Overall, I was disappointed," said UMass Dartmouth Head Coach Joel Baptista. "We need to play better on our home course, and we need to play better if we plan to be competitive at the New England Championships. Matt Connolly's play was a bright spot. He has been a model of consistency for us this year, and, hopefully, that will continue."

UMass Dartmouth will return to action when they visit the New England Intercollegiate Golf Association Fall Invitational Monday and Tuesday. UMASS DARTMOUTH GOLF
