Corsair Golfers 4th After First Day At RIC Invitational

PROVIDENCE, RI-The University of Massachusetts Dartmouth's men's golf team shot a team score of 335 and is fourth after the first day of play at the Rhode Island College Spring Invitational at the par-72 Triggs Memorial Golf Course.


Husson leads with a score of 317, followed by the RIC Gold team at 318 and Endicott at 334. Trailing the Corsairs are Johnson & Wales at 341, the RIC Maroon team at 343, Elms at 344, Wentworth at 346, Anna Maria at 352, Babson at 368, Worcester State at 369, Suffolk at 384, and Mitchell at 418.


For the Corsairs, senior Nick Jagoe (Westport, MA/Westport HS) came in at 81 and is in 11th place, senior George Gillmore (Cotuit, MA/Barnstable HS/Fairfield) scored 83 and is tied for 17th, sophomore Brendan Kelleher (Hopedale, MA/Hopedale HS) came in at 84 and is tied for 20th, junior Matt Connolly (Lynnfield, MA/Lynnfield HS) shot an 87 and is tied for 26th, and sophomore Ryan Benton (Whitman, MA/Whitman-Hanson HS) shot 88 and is tied for 29th.


"I think we played like it was the first competitive round of the season," said UMass Dartmouth Head Coach Joel Baptista. "Only seven players broke 80 today. I think there was some good golf in spurts, and it was good to get the winter hangover under our belt. We officially started practice this week and the conditions weren't ideal. We'll come back and try to improve tomorrow."


The tournament will conclude Saturday.
