By Jeremy Schilling
For the second time in the 2007 Spring season, the Quinnipiac University Bobcats golf team finished 10th in a tournament, this time at the Mount St. Mary’s Invitational held April 20-21. The Bobcats’ 54-hole score was a 927, 46 strokes back of winner Longwood University, who had a team score of 881. Overall in the individual portion of the tournament, the winner again came from the Longwood University team, with Adam Webb taking the title with a 3-round total of 218.
Individually for QU, Steve Velardi led all with a 54-hole score of 222, which put him in a tie for 6th place overall. He was followed by Ian O’Connor, Eric Snow and Brady Giroux, who all had 235, and Ben Cook who had 254.
“It was a great weekend with some fine performances by Steve Velardi and Brady Giroux. We finally played golf without our winter gear on and this will prepare us for the NEC championship in two weeks. All teams play in Myrtle Beach for the championship and the winner continues on to the NCAA regional,” said Head Coach John O’Connor.
That preparation continues Tuesday, April 24 with the St. Peter’s Invitational at the Neshanik Valley GC, in Neshanik, NJ.
