PROVIDENCE, R.I. – With the second day of play being
cancelled due to weather conditions, Endicott's golf team has
secured a third place finish at the Rhode Island College
The Gulls, who shot a combined 334 from their five golfers, sat in third place out of 13 teams after yesterday's opening round, and those results will stand as the final rankings.
Endicott's best performance came from freshman Brett Malboeuf (Shrewsbury, Mass.), who shot a 79 on the day, good enough to tie him for third place overall. Malboeuf finished his round with a 38 on the back nine after starting the day with a 41.
Sophomore Ian Teal (Loudonville, N.Y.) shot his 38 on the front nine and followed it with a 42. His round of 80 tied him for eighth place overall.
Captain Jackson Wyman (Falmouth, Maine) and Jack Carroll (West Hartford, Conn.) had impressive showings as well. Wyman tied for 26th with an 87 on the day and Carroll was tied for 29th overall by shooting 88.
Sophomore Nick Erlichmann (Shrewsbury, Mass.) rounded out Endicott's score with a 90, tying him for 33rd in a field of 65 golfers.
Husson University was the tournament champions with an overall score of 317, and Chris Hamel, who shot a 72 was declared the individual medalist. Host Rhode Island College finished in second place, just a stroke back at 318.
This tournament marked the team's first event since their fall season ended at the NEIGA championship last October. The Gulls will continue to prepare for the upcoming Commonwealth Coast Conference (CCC) Championship tournament, slated for the weekend of April 28th. Endicott qualified for the CCC championship with a third place showing at the conference qualifier in September.
