CRANSTON, R.I. -- The UMass Dartmouth men’s golf team put together a pair of solid rounds to finish sixth in a field of 20 squads competing at the Johnson & Wales Wildcat Spring Invitational over the weekend at the Cranston Country Club.
Perhaps the only other golfer in the world other than Tiger Woods who enjoyed his round more on Sunday was Corsair senior Tom Sheran (Marstons Mills, Mass.), who carded a 76 that included a hole-in-one on the par-3 eighth. Sheran joined fellow seniors Jackson Mitchell (Marion, Mass.) and Austin Alves (Rochester, Mass.) in tying for 28th place individually with two-day totals of 155, as Mitchell fired a final round 73 on Sunday. Junior Nick Avilla (Westport, Mass.) tied for 45th place with a two-day total of 159, while freshman Jack McDonald (New Bedford, Mass.) rounded out UMass Dartmouth’s scoring with a two-day mark of 165.
Amherst took top honors overall with a team score of 596, as the Mammoths bested runner-up Providence by four strokes and host Johnson & Wales by nine strokes. Husson and Springfield rounded out the top five team performances on the weekend.
The Corsairs close out their 2018-19 campaign next weekend by hosting the Lafrance Hospitality Classic at the Allendale Country Club in Dartmouth on Friday and Saturday.
