Spartans Crush the Field at Ursinus; Boslough Captures Title
POTTSTOWN, PA – The York College golf team shot a blistering team score of 296 as the Spartans won their second tournament in as many days in capturing the Ursinus College Fall Invitational at Raven's Claw Golf Club in Pottsville, PA.
The Spartans won the tournament in dominate fashion as they finished 18 strokes better than second place Messiah. Muhlenberg finished third at 318 while Eastern (332) and Ursinus (340) rounded out the top five in the 14-team field.
Just like Tuesday when the Spartans won the team title and two Spartans tied for the individual championship, the Green and White had junior David Boslough (Dalton, Pa./Lackawanna Trail) and freshman Anthony Wagner (Cold Spring Harbor, N.Y./Cold Spring Harbor) tie for the medalist honors. Boslough earned the individual title on the match of cards. Boslough finished tied with teammate Kevin Long (Webster, N.Y./Webster-Thomas) at the Bent Creek Invitational on Tuesday as Long won the match of cards and the medalist honors.
Boslough and Wagner each shot an even par 71. Boslough began his day on hole number seven and notched a birdie on the par four eighth. He gave that stroke back on the ninth hole. However, Boslough birdied the tenth hole as he was one under through four holes. Boslough bogeyed 13, bringing him back to level par. A birdie followed by a double bogey had Boslough at one over through nine holes. He would birdie hole two and par his remaining four holes for the even-par 71.
Wagner started his day on the eighth hole and pared his first four hold before a bogey and a double bogey left him three over par. After a par on 14, Wagner birdied 15 and 17 to get back to one over through 11 holes. Wagner pared one and bogeyed two, getting him back to even. A bogey on three pushed him back to plus one. After three pars, he banged home a birdie on seven, his last hole of the day to forge the tie with Boslough.
Long finished fourth in the tournament as he fired a five-over-par 76. He had the day's best hole as he eagled the 526 yard par 5. Long's round was up and down as he had an eagle, two birdies, seven bogeys, and one double.
Sophomore Ryan Wolbach (Gilbertsville, Pa./Boyertown) played a solid round as he carded a seven-over-par 78 to tie for ninth place in the 67-player field.
The Spartans return to action on Thursday, October 3 when they travel to the Elizabethtown Fall Invitational at the Links of Hershey. The tournament is scheduled for a 12:00 pm shotgun start.
