Mountain Hawks compete at Navy Invitational
Posted: April 20, 2008
ANNAPOLIS, Md. – Lehigh took part in the Navy Invitational this weekend and the Mountain Hawks finished 12th out of 18 participating schools with a two-round score of 617 (302, 315). The host Midshipmen won the team title with a score of 589 (296, 293), which was the same score as Iona (589). The two teams tried to have a playoff to determine the winner, but the weather did not cooperate and so the tiebreaker went to individual scores, in which Navy had the edge. George Washington (592), Florida Gulf Coast (596) and Johnson and Wales (597) rounded out the top-five. Junior Will Robinson once again led the Brown and White individually as he shot a 150 (75, 75) and tied for 23rd place overall.
Other Mountain Hawks that competed were Steve Suarez who finished in a tie for 31st place with a 152 (76, 76), Shane Gilroy (74, 85 = 159) and Mac D’Iorio (78, 81 = 159) who both tied for 66th place, and Duncan Zeiers who shot a 160 (77, 83) and tied for 72nd place.
Navy’s Ben Hayes took the individual crown after shooting a 139 (69, 70), and he was followed by Russel Giglio of Iona with a 144 (71, 73).
Lehigh is back in action on April 22 when the Mountain Hawks compete in the Lehigh Valley Collegiate Invitational at Saucon Valley Country Club. Tee time is set for 1:00 PM.
