Spartans Capture Glenmaura Title

GLENMAURA, PA – The York College golf squad captured their second tournament title of the spring as they won a rain-shortened Glenmaura National College Invitational at the Glenmaura National Golf Club in Glenmaura, Pa. The Spartans shot a team total of 308, good enough to edge McDaniel and Elizabethtown as they each shot 310 to tie for second. The tournament was scheduled to be concluded on Monday but heavy rains forced the cancellation of the second round.

The championship is the Spartans’ fourth tournament title of the school year as they won two in the fall and two in the spring.

Freshman Andrew Schmehl (Vincetown, N.J./Seneca) was outstanding as the freshman carded a three-over-par 74, tying him for second in the tournament, four off the pace of individual medalist Mitch Mercer of Susquehanna.

Senior Shane Bernard (Churchville, Md./C. Milton Wright) was right behind Schmehl as he shot 75 to finish in a tie for fourth. Fellow senior Jimmy DeCastro (Mantoloking, N.J./Gov. Livingston) was the third Spartan in the 70’s as he shot a 79 to finish in a tie for 20th in the 58-player field. Freshman Adam Dupler (York Have, Pa./Red Land) was the final scorer for York as he carded an 80. Junior Cody Trabert (York, Pa./Central York) was the final member of the Spartan lineup participating in the tournament as he shot an 83.

The Spartans will conclude their 2008-09 campaign this coming weekend as they participate in the Capital Athletic Conference championship tournament at Piney Branch Golf Club in Hampstead, MD. The two-day tournament kicks off Saturday morning and concludes Sunday afternoon. The Spartans finished third at last year’s championships.
