By Jeremy Schilling
The Quinnipiac University Bobcats continued their spring 2007 season with a tie for 13th at the rain-shortened New England Championships April 14-15 in Providence, Rhode Island. Due to the weekend nor’easter, play on the 15th was rained out. In the team portion of the event, the Bobcats shot a 321, tying with Dartmouth. Sacred Heart University won that portion of the event with a score of 296. Due to the rainout of the second day, two players tied for the individual title. Army’s Pat Beverly and Brown’s Larry Haertel both finished with 71.
Individually for the Bobcats, Ben Cook played the best and finished with a 76. He was followed by Steve Velardi with 77, Kyle Chumas with 82, and Eric Snow and Ian O’Connor, who both had 88.
Head Coach John O’Connor said the performance was “somewhat disappointing but [did] show some signs that the team is beginning to grind out some good holes.”
The Bobcats continue their season with the Mount St. Mary’s Invitational April 20-21 at the Quail Valley Golf Club in
