CALLAWASSIE ISLAND, S.C. - The Georgetown University men's golf team is in sixth place of nine teams following the first 18 holes on Sunday at the BIG EAST Championships. Senior Ed McCrossen (Philadelphia, Pa./Chestnut Hill Academy) is tied for sixth place out of 43 competitors after shooting a two-over par 74 in the first round. The BIG EAST Championships are being played at the par 72, 7,065-yard Callawassie Island Golf Club.

The Hoyas struggled during the first day of the three-day 54-hole championship.

Marquette, Seton Hall, DePaul and Xavier round out the top five.

Sophomore Matthew Moosavian (Westerville, Ohio/St. Charles Prep) shot a six-over par 78 to tie for 20th place after the first day. Senior Charlie vonArentschildt (Scottsdale, Ariz./Deerfield Academy) turned in a nine-over par 81 to finish third on the team and tie for 31st overall.
