HAMDEN — The Quinnipiac University Bobcats Golf team opened their spring 2008 season with a disappointing 17th place finish out of 20 teams at the George Washington Invitational. The Bobcats combined for a team score of 804. The winner was the University of Maryland who shot a 738, 10 shots ahead of George Washington.
Leading the Bobcats individually was Brady Giroux, who finished 60th overall with a 45-hole score of 199. Ryan Reynolds finished one shot back of him, shooting 200. Rounding it out for the Bobcats were Ian O’Connor, Jayson Loranger, and Ben Cook who all shot 205.
“It’s very difficult to play at the same level as teams that either come from the south or travel to the warm weather to tone up there game during the winter months,” said Head Coach John O’Connor following the end of play. “The kids played pretty well considering though and I believe we’ll see considerable improvement this week at Yale.”
Quinnipiac continues its spring season this weekend with the Yale Invitational at the Yale Golf Course in New Haven. Play begins both days at 9 a.m.
