Spartans Finish Fifth at 16-Team Invitational

YORK, PA – The York College golf squad finished fifth at the 16-team York College Spring Invitational on a sunny and brisk Monday afternoon at Out Door Country Club in York.

The Spartans shot a team total of 310, finishing 20 strokes back of team champion Franklin & Marshall as the Diplomats carded a team total of 290, just two strokes over par. Eastern University finished second at 305 while Muhlenberg was third at 306. The Dickinson Red Devils placed fourth at 307.

The Spartans had 10 players participate in their only home tournament of the campaign. The starters were led by the duo of David Boslough (Dalton, Pa./Lackawanna Trail) and Anthony Wagner (Cold Spring Harbor, N.Y./Cold Spring Harbor) as they each shot a four-over-par 76. That score tied them for 12th place in the 83-player field.

Senior Kevin Long (Webster, N.Y./Webster-Thomas) and junior Josh Strausbaugh (Orlando, Fla./Lake Howell) each shot a seven-over 79 to tie for 28th place as the Spartans' other two scorers.

Ryan Wolbach (Gilbertsville, Pa./Boyertown) was the Spartans' fifth starter as he shot an 82  to tie for 43rd in the tournament.

Senior Matt Storck (Smyrna, Del./Smyrna) shot the best score for York on the day as he carded a three-over-par 75 on the very cold Monday. Storck tied for ninth in the tournament and led the B-team to a composite score of 314.

Tyler Keim (Limerick, Pa./Spring-Ford) fired a five-over-par 77 to place tied for 17th while Alex Colton (Bangor, Pa./Bangor) tied with Long and Strausbaugh as he shot a 79.

Travis Oot (Kirkville, N.Y./East Syracuse-Minoa) and Austin Parker (Cape May, N.J./Lower Cape May Regional) each shot an 83 to tie for 50th place.

The Spartans return to action this weekend when they travel to the McDaniel College Spring Invitational at the Bridges Golf Club in Abbottstown, PA. The two day tournament kicks off Saturday at noon.
