Oct. 7, 2013

AKRON, Ohio - The Georgetown University men's golf team is currently in seventh place after shooting a team 11-over par 299 during the first round of the Firestone Invitational presented by FirstEnergy Solutions at Firestone Country Club North Course in Akron, Ohio on Monday afternoon.

With the pace of morning play slowed by cool temperatures, 15 mile per hour winds and two-inches of rain that fell on the course on Sunday night, the Hoyas played well against a field that includes five of GolfStat's Top-100 teams, (No. 5 USC-Aiken (DII), No. 67 Washington State, No. 69 Samford, No. 85 Davidson and No. 86 Saint Mary's).

Senior captain Charlie vonArentschildt, junior Greg Podufal and freshman Andrew Rudy lead the Hoyas through the first round, each shooting a two-over par 74, in a 10-way tie for 24th place, five strokes behind the individual leader.

Senior Ed McCrossen is currently tied for 50th place, three strokes behind his teammates, carding a five-over par 77 in the first round. Raleigh Chapin rounds out the Hoyas competitors, shooting a 13-over 85 on a wet first day at the Firestone Invitational.

Washington State is the current team leader, shooting a one-over par 289, followed by St. Mary's, with Old Dominion and Kansas State tied for third place. Davidson College's Richard Fountain and Washington State's Charlie Mroz are tied for the individual lead shooting, each shooting a three-under 69.

The Hoyas will tee-off at 8 a.m. on Tuesday morning to conclude the Firestone Invitational. Fans can follow live scoring updates by visiting Akron University's official athletics website - GoZips.com/FirestoneInvitational.
