WASHINGTON - Georgetown University's men's golf program participated in the Donald Ross Invitational hosted by Appalachian State and finished 12th shooting a three round total of 900 (299-304-297). The Hoyas competed against 17 other teams at the Mimosa Hills Golf Club in Morganton, N.C.
After a suspended second round due to darkness on Monday many players were forced to finish round two early Tuesday morning. The third round was completed later Tuesday afternoon and winning the Donald Ross Invitational was Lynn University (290-282-282=854). Rounding out the top five were James Madison, Wofford, High Point and Elon, respectively.
Raleigh Chapin (Doylestown, Pa./New Hope Solebury) posted Georgetown's best three round total with a 220 (72-76-72). It is Chapin's second straight top 40 finish and his best 72-hole score as a Hoya. Every round Chapin has played this fall has counted toward the Hoya scoring total. His two 72s were the low rounds of the event for Georgetown.
Greg Podufal (Erie, Pa./Cathedral Prep) closed the event tied for 46th after a three round total of 223 (75-76-72). Four strokes back from Podufal was Justin Edwards (Westlake Village, Calif./Westlake Village) who shot 227 (75-76-76).
Seeing their first action of the fall was Brad Cadigan (South Weymouth, Mass./Boston College HS) and Ed McCrossen (Philadelphia, Pa./Chestnut Hill Academy). Cadigan finished tied for 70th (77-76-80=233) and McCrossen was tied at 85th (81-82-77=240).
The Hoyas host the 28th annual Georgetown Intercollegiate next week on Monday, October 22, and Tuesday, October 23. The tournament will be held at The Members Club at Four Seasons in Beallsville, Md.
