The Spartans Open the Spring with a Runner-Up Finish

CARLISLE, PA – The York College golf squad opened their 2009 spring campaign with a second place finish at the Dickinson College Invitational at the Mayapple Golf Links in Carlisle, PA on Wednesday. The Spartans finished with a team score of 309, 11 strokes back of team champion Dickinson. Penn State Berks finished third with a score of 334 while Lycoming was fourth with a cumulative score of 349.

The Spartans were led by junior Cody Trabert (York, Pa./Central York) as he carded a four-over-par 74. That 74 was good enough to allow Trabert to finish third behind Dickinson’s Joey Goldstein, who shot 70, and Tucker Joyce who finished second with a three-over-par 73.

Adam Dupler (York Haven, Pa./Red Land) shot a 77 for the Spartans while Shane Bernard (Churchville, Md./C. Milton Wright) and Jimmy DeCastro (Mantoloking, N.J./Governor Livingston) each carded 79’s. Andrew Schmehl (Vincentown, N.J./Seneca, N.J.) was the fifth member of the Spartan starting lineup and finished with an 81 for York.

The Spartans are now 67-16 overall and return to action on Tuesday, March 24 when they travel to the Gettysburg College Invitational. The tournament is set for a 12:00 pm start.
